A good idea for a local customization; but HTML strings in a wiki page
are not necessarily "errors". Sometimes I'm writing a page about HTML,
and I'm glad that PmWiki isn't interpreting my <...> sequences. :-)
Besides, I don't want to code up every possible HTML tag, nor do
I want to assume that everything inside of angle brackets is an
HTML tag <grin>.
