thanks for the hint. I have not been aware of this library.

Nevertheless it is not that simple since the Catalogue does not define the
formal language of the description element. Links are contained with a special
XML tag.
I would think that an exhaustive analysis is required to see which kind of funny
things are contained in the Catalogue before attempting an automatic formatting
of any kind.

I will put it on the list of ideas to be explored...

Ciao
