Yeah, sorry. It could've been expressed with less noise, there's just
too much noise in my head for processing individual thought patterns (no
reference to the album ;D) in the recent weeks.

That is what I want for Guix as well, as I see it as an important
missing function.

Yeah, I thought more of it was translated. But the possibility is there.

Haunt simply has no opinion, and formats such as Markdown don't have it
either. The only format I am aware of which has this functionality is
the C meets HTML meets something else home-grown format a friend uses
since the '90s. If I come to find out that this is really the only time
saving solution, I will write something which just parses files writen
in that language, but I'd rather have something which works for
everyone and their existing environments.

Your reply helped a bit, thanks. Ultimately it's (hopefully) not only up
to me alone how we proceed with the web site at pragmatique.

I wrote the first message before I knew where I was going with the
layout, etc. It's loosely based on the Guix website but uses its own
theme, no images, etc. Just a first primary version (did I mention
already that school (the later digital/media/art related parts) ruined
art and web design for me? It's annoying.)
