This is very cool, I just had to share it...

Get diction from: http://www.gnu.org/software/diction/diction.html

And pyx, either in Python form, or Perl form (for perl, type "perl -MCPAN
-e 'install XML::PYX'" - I don't know if you can do that with Python).

Then type:

pyx <xmlfile> | grep ^- | perl -pe 's/^-//; s/\\n\n//;' | diction

The bit between pyx and diction says:

Get just text nodes.
Strip text nodes of leading "-" character.
Strip text nodes of pyx encoded \n's.

You can substitute "diction" for "style" too.

Should be a great boon for XML based authors.
