OK, re-read Re^4: Approved PM markup? but should not have needed to had I read more carefully before.

However, just as we implemented non-standard tags -- <code> etc -- skilled individuals could, I suspect, implement equivalents for a limited variety of style-attribute-equivalents -- .red, .green. etc. Creating a few of those would go a long way, IMO, to making it possible to highlight important subject matter in ways that would enhance communication other than <>;font>; <b>; <em>; <big> etc.

As things stand now, explaining some issues appearing in CODE requires lengthy notes pointing out that problem x at line such-and-such in your original creates problems at... at a remove from the problem (i.e., in the narrative rather than the code) or requires an extended comment in the code section, interrupting the flow.

My intent re span is NOT TO PROVIDE SYNTAX HIGHLIGHTING but rather to provide non-standard tag -- say <note> maybe -- as a means to create a visibly distinct rendering for comments inserted inside code tags without the limitations of using the hash_sign or pod markup.

As to <br>, you invited general comments. My thoughts on that were clearly an aside for the community reading your (++ed) thoughts.
