Editors) that it would be considered > for release 2.0 As Mike Kay pointed out, I didn't notice that later in the Output part of the spec, it says that using disable-output-escaping lifts any well-formedness restrictions. This is just one of those things where the spec is carefully worded for clarity from the "here are the results of using this instruction" point of view, with few or no examples given for "if you're trying to achieve a certain result, here's how to use this instruction to do it"... I think more informative examples would help, but the wording of the normative sections is probably fine. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________ Mike J.
