The first nearly useful release of docutils (0.0.4 - the next release
might have a somewhat shorter number!) is now to be found described at:


which is much the same as:


Please note that I have *not* updated the Demon site.

New with this release:

* stpy.py is back, with its oh-so-attractive command line interface
* Python modules and StructuredText files can be read in
* A DOM tree can be generated
* XML can be output (thanks to minidom's writexml method)
* The RE used for descriptive lists has been fixed (again) - hopefully
it's all better now
* Some refactoring of DocNodes.py was done - it may not be finished yet
* The doctests in DocNodes.py and TextNodes.py still work (well, that's
not *new*)

My next task is to add HTML output, which will make it easier for me to
decide if I've done the DOM trees right, and to document the DTD I think
I'm using for the DOM tree (so other people have some hope of
interfacing to it).
