that's what i meant with 'preserving structural information': if
in an x(ht)ml representation there is a section enclosed in

SynthDef("help-WhiteNoise", { arg out=0;

syntax colorization can be done on the fly.

as of not being able to edit code examples directly, i agree
there's a loss of interactiveness, which could be alleviated by
being able to open the current selection or all code sections in a
document in a separate 'workspace' window by means of a key
stroke. an inconvenience in fact, but a minor one imo.
