since it has been somewhat difficult to find a new concise markup for div, i've been
wondering if there are options that might be more open to future expansion? one
possiblility that has occurred to me is something like this:
the idea is that '>>' and '<<' are used to flag a third character which opens up a new
set of 3 character shortcuts. in this example i'm using a '-' to suggest "division",
but there may be something better for that.
it's possible these '>>' markups could generally be used for higher level constructs
compared to the lower level formatting constructs. having an entirely new set of
possibilities for the 3 character opens up a symbolic space for these perhaps.
any other ideas out there along these lines?
