We already have the ability to add bold, italic, and underline
formatting to our documents using circumfix notation (*bold*, /italic/,
_underlined_).  We can also style entire lines using <pre> notation by
having a colon  as the first non-whitespace character on a line, or by
putting the line under a QUOTE headline.  I would like to see an
additional feature added to org which would allow some circumfix
notation to be exported with <pre></pre> tags.  This would be useful for
including single programming terms in a sentence and setting them apart
visually.  I'm envisioning something like

    many programming languages have a ;for; loop.

which would be exported as

    <p>many programming languages have a <pre>for</pre> loop.</p>

another possible syntax would be

    many programming languages have a #for# loop.

The specific markup used isn't really important to me, but I would like
the ability to specify this kind of formatting for single words instead
of whole lines.

While I'm at it, is strike-through possible?

    -event- was canceled

could become

    <p><strike>event</strike> was canceled</p>

Again, any syntax which is easy to parse is fine with me.

As mentioned in my previous mail, it would also be nice if these two
pieces of markup could stack with each other and the existing markup syntax.
