That's done now as you are aware :)

The new parser is under good way. Was hoping to have something you could try today, then realised.. the templates! Logarion_xml uses the template module to do the headers and footers and that's crucial, so have that has to happen too. The template notation is so simple that there is hardly a need to maintain the dependency.

The later two don't help, but I appreciate the first. In the spirit of the new parser, with pluralist notations, the notation can be added.

That's the idea, though not for ease of conversion but to accommodate tastes and preferences.
