Why not, good idea :-)

There is only ttde.typ which does something like that in the last
few lessons, but that is German only.

It's included in the debian package:

It looks like you need to install the libxml-perl package.

No, not really. It is good practice to introduce characters such as {}
before you use them in drills/speed tests. You can have a look at
ttde.typ. Comments ('#') are treated as gtypist comments only if they
are at the very beginning of the line, so you can use '#' in lesson
content everywhere.

You might want to use Emacs or vim because we have highlighting support
for these editors (preconfigured for you on Debian) :-)

Good Luck and Have Fun!
