I'm open to changing this, but I thought I would start
with the most strict version. The advantage of the strict
version is that it doesn't need to be parsed. The Desparate
Perl Hacker can do four regex compares for the four variants
and get back to work.

Maybe folks who've worked with authors on SGML systems have
some relevant experience. Is this too strict for folks that
aren't tamed by computers?
