nice to see you working on this!

just one thing: it would be nice if -- while discovering how the .sla
works -- you could contribute it in a way that is compatible with the
pseudo DTD i'm compiling:


the easiest way is to fork the repository, start a new branch and then
make pull requests... or just give me a link to some similar document
you're compiling...

(btw, if there is any good reason, i can also switch to another
representation of the .sla structure... i'm not a fan of DTDs... but it
would be nice -- at some time -- to be able to validate the scribus
files: at least for what concerns their formal correctness!)

have a nice weekend
