mp4h sees only the <BLA>...</BLA> construct and has to expand it...

Without opening tag </BLB> has to processed like an unknown tag.

The linkes marked with [*] are out of subject ;-) First we (the WML users
and template and modules writers) want to solve real problems, and then we
think about pathetic things ;-)

It wouldn't help much if we had solutions for these cases (which IMO
shouldn't be processed - I'd like an error message), when at the other
hand we have to think about the correct use of opening tags in perl
constructs (see the <: print "<img src=\"$file\">"; :> discussion).

As user I want a fast pass 2 with a known, simple grammar :-) - in my case
it doesn't matter if it'll be mhc or mp4h.

Nice greetings,
