-<p>
-              Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent
-              framework for building and consuming network services. The Etch
-              toolset includes a network service description language, a compiler,
-              and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages. Etch is
-              also transport-independent, allowing for a variety of different
-              transports to used based on need and circumstance. The goal of Etch is
-              to make it simple to define small, focused services that can be easily
-              accessed, combined, and deployed in a similar manner. Ultimately with
-              Etch, service development and consumption becomes no more difficult
-              than library development and consumption.

-                                should be avoided. The team defended the position by pointing out

-                                over the world and another year or two the Debian Etch is just a
-                                distant memory.

+<p>
+              Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent
+              framework for building and consuming network services. The Etch
+              toolset includes a network service description language, a compiler,
+              and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages. Etch is
+              also transport-independent, allowing for a variety of different
+              transports to used based on need and circumstance. The goal of Etch is
+              to make it simple to define small, focused services that can be easily
+              accessed, combined, and deployed in a similar manner. Ultimately with
+              Etch, service development and consumption becomes no more difficult
+              than library development and consumption.

+                                over the world and another year or two the Debian Etch is just a
