They are only implemented for remote includes, even though they would make sense for raw TML use too.

I've also noticed that the implementation of literal is less than ideal - it would be better to implement it by calling takeOutBlock directly, rather than surrounding it with <literal> - as that way you could use literal to save into a topic text.

-- TWiki:Main/SvenDowideit - 13 Jun 2008

especially if you wanted to try to preload a textarea with a literal copy of some other topic's (or external web page's) text - then you get a textarea that contains an un-putBack literal marker.

thus exposing some very internal gumpf to the poor user.

(I actually found this while trying to copy the latest content of a topic to another topic, appending a history on the way - perhaps this should be done via the SaveScript's templatetopic param, but in 4.2.0, this param only works for new topics - something that is also a bug.
