EtText is a simple plain-text format which allows conversion to and from HTML.
Instead of editing HTML directly, it provides an easy-to-edit, easy-to-read and
intuitive way to write HTML, based on the plain-text markup conventions weve
been using for years.
Like most simple text markup formats (POD, setext, etc.), EtText markup handles
the usual things: insertion of <p> tags, header recognition and markup.
However it also adds a powerful link markup system, and tries to be
XHTML-conformant in its generated code.
EtText markup is simple and effective; its very similar to setext, WikiWikiWeb
TextFormattingRules or Zopes StructuredText.
EtText is an integral part of WebMake, but unlike WebMake, which is GPLed,
EtText is distributed under Perls Artistic license.
