Bit historic since zim was originally written in Perl and also because I had my own ideas how a good wiki format should look. Meaning to add other options for compatibility with other wikis, but never gotten around doing that myself. > Would it help (would it be accepted) if I wrote a simpler and more > extensible wiki parser? ... 8< ... Sure, if it supports the same wiki syntax and the code is cleaner than mine I'll be happy to use it. Looks like you are more qualified than I am since I never followed any formal courses in parsers or grammars. I have been meaning to clean up the object structure used for the internal parse tree, but if you use the "builder" interface for xml.etree it should be compatible when I switch to the new library.
