thanks for the hint!

i've found 
http://scribus.net/svn/Scribus/trunk/Scribus/scribus/ui/about.cpp ... 
and i noticed a long comment by myself explaining how the about file 
get's read...

i've had a fast look at the code and it looks like it's a mixture of 
parsing line by line and a set of replaces.

not 100% what i need but i'll have a deeper look.

i've also alread had a look at the formatted text loader (line by line, 
also with some regexp) and the html importer (which uses a real -- 
existing -- xml parser...).

we will see how far i get!
