I very much agree.  My stumbling attempts to argue that HTML didn't
owe that much to SGML were trying to make this point: it's the
markup meme that matters, not the details of one spec or another.
Re-reading the Ted Nelson piece that someone pointed to the other day
("Embedded Markup Considered Harmful") simply confirmed that feeling.
