I actually want many pages to be publically editable, but you're right, I
didn't realise it could be used for static pages too.
However, I think this is attacking slightly the wrong problem: I'm more
worried about how to wire my content together into a site than how to make
the content in the first place (apart from parts of the front page, it will
be mostly translated from other formats anyway). This is not a question of
the (content) markup language, but of linking content, images, stylesheets
&c. together into pages. Layout/structure markup, I suppose. This lends
itself more to an XML-ish (or, in Lua-speak, tables) description than flat
text, I think.
