Hi all!

I don't know if you're aware of this, but there is currently a W3C task force that's looking at HTML/XML reconciliation[0] and that is getting close to publishing a document[1] about some aspects of the problem.

One topic that has surfaced a few times already is the applicability of EXI to HTML, despite the X in its name. Arguing in the abstract that it's possible (at least for a class of documents) is both true and unconvincing, so I was wondering if there'd be anyone here willing to share experience with this there? I don't think that the TF is looking for a full report on the issue, but something along the lines of "We tried it, it works (or not) except in this or that case, we had to apply this magic here to work around that problem, etc." would likely prove quite illuminating. Equally, "we looked into it and it turns out to be a daft idea" would be helpful if only in putting the matter to rest.

Thanks for any input!
