    Hi Phil, 

    Thank you for being a long standing WorkFlowy customer of more than 5 years!

    I visited the site... but do not see the actual raw OPML you're wanting. It looks like it is rendered as HTML (or something)... 

    This is the kind of OPML supported language structure that WorkFlowy supports:

The result is a sci-fi setting with fantasy style story arcs. Read because I previously enjoyed Bear&apos;s White Space novels a lot.

The entire hero&apos;s journey in this book is a bit useless in the end, but the setting and context is fun. I like how Culture novels play with the sense of scale, and orders of magnitude both in terms of computing speed, time, space and human emotions. I also like how irony is positioned as the answer to the purposelessness of life, not cynicism, nihilism." authorurl="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iain_Banks" referencelisturl="" inLanguage="en" category="sf"/>

    Hi Philip,

    Not being an OPML expert, I am not able to say why. I find this fascinating, though. Typically one would export OPML from one outliner and paste into another. I'm not sure what is required to paste from a web page into WorkFlowy and have the correct hierarchies. Do you often paste from .opml sites? There is clearly an incompatibility here...
