[plt-scheme] HTML library modules

by using the "htmlprag" package on planet, I allow people to edit files in
dreamweaver, and then I parse them into SHTML (lists instead of a string),
then i write a search for my own unique tags, which in the dreamweaver would
look something like:


you can also do:
(string-append "The number four: " (number->string (+ 2 2))))

the downside is that you loose the parenthisis balancing as it is not
supported in dreamweaver.

Note that htmlprag's SHTML and the "web servet's html", while both are html
formats based on lists, they are not the same format, and i do not believe
they can be used together.  (someone correct me if i'm wrong on that)

P.S. to confirm that everything is going to get parsed correctly before you
start coding you can write a small program that takes the dreamweaver's html
file, converts it to SHTML, converts the SHTML to a string, then displays
the string to the webserver. (the program is like 5 lines long) Do this to
all your html templates that you hope to use.  You can then confirm that
there are no bugs in the parser before you start your project. (A while back
I found a bug via this method, and he fixed it up really quickly when i told
him about it, so if you find a bug let him know)

P.S.S If your ussing a html editor, what editor are you using?  As I'm
writing this, i'm wondering if it would be possible to pop a external editor
for specific tags from dreamweaver.  (i.e. have dreamweaver calldrscheme to
edit the string between:
