Fw: [Oberon] Native Oberon on SourceForge

Although the SF is currently very empty :-), I think this
is a very good idea. It allow also "non Oberonians" to
take a look at the code ...

What kind of ASCII markup is it ?

Shouldn't we try to map the Oberon text to XML
(which could preserve also "active" elements) ?
I'm still not using Aos/BlueBottle, but isn't there some
tool for converting Text to XML? My switch to Aos
is delayed since I've got the wrong dual-processor 
machine (beware of Adaptec 7895) and the wrong 
Perrmedia2 graphics board (beware of the Permedia2v
chipset, used in AccelStar II 3D card and most probably
the Elsa Winner 2000/Office ViVo). 

Pieter: It would be nice if you start populating SF with the Markup code.
