Thanks!  I was looking at the Pango Reference Manual and entirely missed
the docs for GMarkup in GLib. The former could do with a link to the
latter, as it wasn't clear that the Pango markup language is merely a
special case of GMarkup (this was in a default install of RedHat 8).

I've got it working now; seems to cope well with the various complex
examples I'm sending it.
