I have used TeX for a university paper, and I think the result looked
great. I might use this language to generate TeX, HTML, … Most likely
my project will die, since that what’s happens to most projects, but I
prefer the syntax of this language over TeX and troff.

Yup. I realize that now. There are some visual similarities, but the
goals are totally different. This is more like a markup language that
tries to be as transparent as possible.
