Ok, proprietary was the wrong word ... and didnt I mention it being
GPL? I forget and I dont have my original email.

http://thewml.org/ : "WML is a free and extensible Webdesigner's
off-line HTML generation toolkit"
So it is a text to html markup language ... still my original assertion.

Yes, and the OP didnt say this was a research project either. But I
don't want to start a flame war on the merits of WML and whether it is
a good language, every body's personal toolchest should have as many

I was trying to make in my reply:
