Really? I've been thinking about how one would provide a
presentation-neutral uF for marking navigation in blog posts,
including marking up typical archive-directory blocks one sees on many

Have a look at this page [1]. There's real semantic information
underlying what's presented on this page; how would you do it with
XOXO without restructuring presentation-wise what's there?

And I'm not asking this in a sarcastic way or anything! I really want
to know how to do this. One of the (many) issues I have with XOXO is
that for at least certain applications, it seems to be asking a lot of
the implementor.

Regards, etc...
