Thanks for the suggestion. I'll read how to do a TOC, footnotes and
commenting/tagging paragraps, summarizing in vim. If you can suggest any
link, TIA. "your own markup tags"... I wouldn't use sgml/xml, but i'll
wait for any links on how to apply them effectively.

WYSIWYG "is an obstacle to writing"? Damn! I knew it! Tell it to the
LibreOffice team. They need to know it.

I do really appreciate your help, just it sounded illogic. Sorry for
making fun. I live it.
