Thanks   Dhananjay & Noufal , now i have tons of options. But then again i
am trying to find the most suitable one for my program.
Well basically what i am trying to achieve is to create my own syntax
(reasonably simple ) which will help the user to write simple HTML ( +CSS
hopefully) pages without actually coding any of it .

i.e for example

if the user writes

this is heading
============          -->  { the '=' would be a token for headers }

the rest paragraph

the equivalent html generated could be

<h1>  this is heading  </h1>
<p> the rest paragraph </p>

besides i am also trying to incorporate inline CSS and other basic
functualities .
