loooooong sentences carrying if, and, thenů
I wonder if on the non-agenda of the un-meeting of HTML WG, we should  
have a drawing session.
That could be fun.

* Remove shoes (please have clean feet ;) )
* Having large piece of papers
* put the first one on the ground
* Start to draw "Hey I'm a user agent". I have this URI what do I do?
* Then start to draw each steps of the parsing/processing algorithm  
with arrows and boxes

When we are going out of a sheet, we duct tape another one beside,  
and so on.
At the end we will have a giant *visual* diagram of the parsing  
algorithm.


That might help to see ambiguities, and help implementers to  
understand the algorithm.


I volunteer to make it a graph in a machine readable format after
