All those exist, it's just that dated browsers like IE don't support them. Mozilla, for instance, does. You mention SVG and GUI widgets in almost the same breath. That's a place where XHTML could help. By being integrated into a common profile with SVG, one would gain a nice number of widgets that could be reimplemented in SVG but would be much simpler with an XHTML renderer at hand, tables and lists being good candidates. -- Robin Berjon <robin.berjon@e...> Research Engineer, Expway 7FC0 6F5F D864 EFB8 08CE 8E74 58E6 D5DB 4889 2488
