Simple HTML templating language

DML is a simple templating language designed for managing web sites based in static HTML files (no CGI, SSI, etc.). It has been obsoleted by DML2 which has in turn been obsoleted by XSLT.

Development: Reorganization

Since I have recently finished the new layout for DeZine (it still needs a lot of tweaking, though), I was putting all of the layout data into a DML Template file so I could start adding some content when I decided to make it so that parameters were scanned for DML elements. While implementing that, I decided to start on a massive reorganization of the DML format. For one thing, PCRE has been removed from DMLparse since it is a HUGE hassle to work with. Also, I changed the style of DML elements and came up with the bright idea of having named parameters to DML tags. Also enclosed stuff like <(tag)>this<(/)> is in the works. Big changes, but I am getting very close to a release!
