Very similar arguments were made 15 years ago when the XML efforts were underway. "The SGML ship has sailed." That wasn't a good reason to ignore the issue then, and it isn't now. In addition, as I've already pointed out, browsers support all the behaviors I've described, and XML already has -some- support in virtually every browser. This is low-hanging fruit. --->Ben
