- Extend (or contract ;) the provided StructuredText processors to
provide alternate formatting rules.
For example, some people don't like the use of single-quoted strings to indicate literal text and want to turn off this feature.
New StructuredText rules can be defined in two ways:
- A new processor can be created from scratch that reads a basic StructuredText document and creates a more specialized documement. One could, concievably use an XSLT processor to perform this transformation, since the basic structured text document object implements the DOM API.
- The supplied
StructuredText.Documentprocessor can be subclassed to create a customiZed processor, as described in CustomizingTheDocumentProcessor.
The new or customized processor is used to produce document objects from basic document objects.
