I would be interested to see a mode that saves the properties as XML
entities containing the text, with the properties encoded as XML
properties.  Standard tools could then be used to do various
transformations on the resulting XML, to create web pages, DocBook
format, OpenOffice documents, and so forth from the same file.

(defun switch-to-scratch () (interactive) "Switch to *scratch* buffer."
(switch-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*scratch*")))
(global-set-key (kbd "C-t") 'switch-to-scratch)
