<abstract>This is an abstract.</abstract>
<title>A Title</title>
<subtitle>A Sub Title</subtitle>
This is some content. It goes on and on, and doesn't
really care about what is says. Paragraphs split with
a blank line. 
Like this; I am a new paragraph. I'm pretty short, though.
<subtitle>Another Sub Section</subtitle>
I am some more content. My purpose is to demonstrate some
of the semantic hint tags which we might include. <name>Someone
Else</name> might have a name, associated with a birthday (like,
say, <date>April 13, 1977</date>). They might have been born
in a place such as <place>Calgary, Alberta</place> which 
doesn't have to be a full, canonical place-name.

It might be interesting to specify <jargon>jargon</jargon>
in the content. One might even have a footnote, defined inline
<footnote>This footnote would actually be rendered in a manner
considered good for the medium. For example, at the bottom of 
a printed page.</footnote>.
Although complicated, adding inline LaTeX would be a very
nice future feature:
References are a little harder, but defining those inline
as well might be best, as for the GPL
