I'm seeing something different.

I agree. It's useful to be able to reuse (:div1:) as a 'raw' <div> - and
subsequent nested divs - without having to worry about numbering each
id. In fact, it would negate a lot of the power of PmWiki's nested div
capability in many cases.

Doesn't it? I know that you are right, but this feels the right way to
do it in this case. I suppose it's because we are using (:div1:) in the
manner of a wikistyle. Ah well.

As above, this seems to be acting funky.

Works for me.
