Interestingly, I did do some work on complexity metrics for SGML years
ago. Took in the markup/text ratio, #attributes, and nesting depth,
and produced a number. I never did that much with it, except verify
that if roughly reflected my opinion. From memory, nesting depth (D)
was scaled in as something like D squared.
