Hi Jan,

You probably want to take me off your e-mail list.  I believe the previous Richard Evans was
in the UK.  However, I am in the US and likely in a different organization all together.

Cheers, - Richard

A "complete" list of these tags would be helpful ...

Maybe in the test-buildfile.
+ ensure that the example is really runnable
+ additional test case :-)
- no possibility for "colorizing" important parts
You could search for special named targets or for special comments.

<target name="manual.echo.example1>
    <!-- ant.text: A message which only appears in <tt>-debug</tt> mode.
    <echo message="Deleting drive C:" level="debug"/>
