Flippi uses Text.Html at the moment, though a change wouldn't be too 
horrible at this point. A revamp might be a good thing, better docs 
certainly would - it took me a few hours to figure out how to use it 

You can count me under "used it because it comes with the compiler", too.

IMO, only if I don't need to know anything XMLish to use it. If it's a 
case of implemented on top of, naturally I have no reason to be concerned.

of the time you just get burnt worse though.
