One thing I like about this incremental approach though is that much of the benefit can be realized *only* with a new parser. I know a parser is complicated, but with some of the complexity removed, it would actually be much simpler to create a new one. I don't know how easily major players could be enlisted, but I do know that if nobody sticks their neck out, willing to make a mistake and maybe look stupid, nothing will ever happen. > "What's the business case?" Coming from the publishing world, it seems to me there is an opportunity to support whole new models of content delivery: on e-readers and other mobile devices especially. Having a more compact syntax, and a simpler parser and processing model should be attractive there, as David Lee and others have attested. -Mike
