People who know HTML are used to thinking in terms of <div>'s, so
I was going with that. It reduces the questions of "how can I
generate a <div> in the output?"
I don't mind using a term other than 'div', but none of 'style',
'blockstyle', nor 'env' work for me. Perhaps (:section:)?
However, 'section' carries some interpretations I'd rather not have.

I'm guessing you meant (:style class='Patrick':). Or are we
going to restrict the attributes in the resulting <div> to be
only class= and id=? That wouldn't bother me too much.
(:section Pm #anchor:)
Everything here is enclosed in a <div class='Pm' id='#anchor'>
But I still wish for something shorter than (:section:). Maybe
just (:s Pm:)
By analogy to WikiStyles, we could look at using [%name%]
as a shortcut for divs. The %...% recall WikiStyles, and
the [...] look like a block.
This is a Pm block.
