I've see that it's relatively straight fwd. to convert standard 
html-SELENESE into the Caretaker's SELENESE format with a few repexp.
However my question remains - how do you do it?

I've tinkered with the idea of a wizard-like converter, so the workflow 
would be: paste-in-your-html-SELENESE and click the wizard-button, which 
converts it into Caretaker-SELENENSE [via JS like eg. the lorem-ipsum 
EXT does it], or do the same with a transformation during saving the 
SELENESE. - this might also better be moved into the below Idea.

- Create a new data-type: Selenium-Test-Snippets where we would store 
the sippets.
- Change the current SELENESE text-field to a groupfield allowing the 
selection and ordering of Selenium-Test-Snippets.
- Change the Selenium-Test-Executor to "compile" the complete test out 
of the selected Test-Snippets and their order.
