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.
