Wow, I made the exact same mistake, except that I never caught on to
what was really indented. In any event, the more verbose syntax
proposed by Michael seems like the only reasonable alternative to me

That said, I am leaning more toward the opinion that anything more
complex that can already be done should be left to raw html. But I've
already explained my position on that before.
