Hi Ismael,

the wml pass2 is a stripped down version of meta-html ; as explained
somewhere in the docs, lot of functionalities have been removed.
I checked, and found no reference to streams, so i assume you read the
meta-html doc. It's a good idea to read manuals, but in this case not
Other stuff have been removed, like databases management. I know there
is a reference to <with-open-database>, it will be fixed.

When i replied to your previous question, i made a mistake.  I wrote
macros with meta-html to show how powerful it is, because i like how it
works, and moreover because i was working on upgrading wml pass2 to the
next release of wml.
The original vocation of wml_p2_mhc is to define new html-like tags. So
i think you should begin by using it only to this purpose and take
benefit of the powerful wml_p3_eperl for programming.
When you are familiar with wml_p2_mhc, you may convert some eperl code
to meta-html constructions.

About your specific problem, i did not understand what you are trying to
perform, sorry.

Have a nice day
