We'll test it out a little later with the content from

Just have to decide if we should do the changes (below) on the canonical
or in the copy on  I _think_ it makes sense to use the
new syntax all over, since we are using your new changes to output to
XML for the release notes..  There is not enough time to get the release
notes beat writers to use the new syntax for the FC6 test2 release, but
we can get it changed over for the test3 release.  

There, answered my own question -- we're switching to the new syntax and
macro needs, even if they don't work on the Wiki.

Note to others -- Mikko and I discussed the formatting (indenting) of
the XML; since we already use xmlformat to clean it up, we're going to
include that as part of the toolchain/process for outputting XML from
the Wiki.  He is using xmllint to verify, so it should be clean XML and
cause no problems going through xmlformat.
