More precisely: I have an incomplete patch that does this for a
specialised subset of HTML that I invented ad hoc for demonstrational
purposes. It could be extended to support nearly any
pointy-brackets format that's suitable. Thus it should be

do that.

Not yet, at least. I do want to make some progress in my pet project
