Please provide supporting evidence for this claim or retract it. Many  
have cited reasons to believe Ian Hickson is an expert on HTML  
parsing. You have cited no reasons to believe the contrary, and yet  
you keep saying the same thing over and over again. To repeatedly  
impeach someone's credentials without backing is inappropriate and  
rude. And in general, repeating a claim without evidence, in the face  
of evidence to the contrary, is not an appropriate method of public  
debate.
