I did not look very closely to your code, but I will have more time
tonight (after work).
But, I believe that doing what you say is breaking the law of
separation of content and presentation. Here, you modify the document in
order to modify the presentation. This modification should be
computed from the structure of the document, not inserted in it.
Maybe I am a kind of "psychorigid ML die hard" saying this, but
the way you try to do this is more appropriate to some Word-processors
(No, I won't call names! :-) than to proper SGML processing.
