It means nothing in the above context. A scripting language for those familiar with Python, etc., will allow the application of strange and wonderous things. But for those of us who don't care to learn another language (maybe only me), this "snippit inserter" is just what we need and would like to see it, or something very like it, solidly interfaced to SIGIL.

Each book is an individual work and must be approached as such. Scripting is for handling multiple books in exactly the same manner. It seems to me that this is the provence of SIGIL itself. A scripting language seems to be for making changes to the SIGIL output. Which is fine. However, if SIGIL produces a clean solid HTML file, with the ability to insert a TOC and other desired links, e.g. a linked LIST of ILLUSTRATIONS and will let me go in and format the book as I see fit, I will be as happy as a Blujay in a corn patch. I will then bless thee and thine to the seventh generation and shout thy praise from the roof tops.

Thanks for all your work. You are totally dedicated.
