<br>This is a dummy paragraph, it would of course be longer than this.
<br>
<br>This is just another dummy paragraph; however, after it comes some pictures of my cat.

<br>That was nice. Here is an audio recording of my dog barking:

<br><a href="http://www.example.com/dogbark.mp3">http://www.example.com/dogbark.mp3</a>

<br>And finally here is a video of my two pets being cuddly:

<br>I think its clear that the output I am suggesting for this would be something along these lines:

<br>   &lt;p&gt;This is a dummy paragraph, it would of course be longer than this.&lt;/p&gt;
<br>   &lt;p&gt;This is just another dummy paragraph; however, after it comes some pictures of my cat.&lt;/p&gt;

<br>   &lt;div&gt;&lt;img src="<a href="http://www.example.com/pictureofmycat2.jpg">http://www.example.com/pictureofmycat2.jpg</a>"/&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
<br>   &lt;div&gt;&lt;img src="<a href="http://www.example.com/animatedpictureofmycat.gif">http://www.example.com/animatedpictureofmycat.gif</a>"/&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
<br>   &lt;p&gt;That was nice. Here is an audio recording of my dog barking:&lt;/p&gt;

<br>   &lt;p&gt;And finally here is a video of my two pets being cuddly:&lt;/p&gt;
<br>   &lt;video src="<a href="http://www.example.com/dogandcat.mp4">http://www.example.com/dogandcat.mp4</a>"&gt;&lt;/video&gt;
<br>
<br>Id also say that the advantage of the syntax is clear: its dead simple. Furthermore it downgrades quite nicely.
<br>
<br>There are of course problems it does not solve and extra complexity it would introduce; however, I thought Id write this short email to see if anyone would be interested in discussing the idea.
