Hi Len,
	Strangely formatted - but serious post follows.

from EMail EMail, Para, Emph, Line

Root = EMail (
 Para (
  Line ("Yup. Its weird and it has more to do with people issues"),
  Line ("than it has to do with technology issues.")

 Para (
  Line ("After all. It is possible to create a markup language"),
  Line (
   "with a reasonably readable syntax that is",
   Emph ("directly readable"), 
   "by, say,")
  Line ("the Python programming language.")

 Para (
  Line ("For some reason, such things do not fly"),
  Line ("despite many advantages in terms of object-orientation"),
  Line ("ease of parsing and so on, whereas"),
  Line ("pointy bracket systems do!")
