Yeah, probably. I doubt Chris did it capriciously though, so he may have some good reasons.

Oh, well I have just a couple of minutes ago been generating pages that safari is perfectly happy with using 

(GoogleWikiCompiler process: '= *Hello*
_italic stuff_
A link [link]
A longer link to an outside site [foo>http:\\www.foo.com/wibble]

Should be a paragraph break before this. 
This should     be preformatted ---
* abullet
*  another one
** bullet2
# an unordered list
# a second unordered item
some code := other}}}

|| Table header row || second column||
|| 4 || 5 thing ||
') asString

Sounds like it -
GoogleWikiDomNode a
		attributes: { 'href' -> ((address as: String), '.html') };
for example.

I'll take a look at your changes too. I do wonder how little of the Xtreams package one could load to get a working parser; it doesn't appear to use a lot so far? Adding 4Mb to my image seems a bit much. What other value does Xtreams have?
