Thanks Paul. So, wouldn't it then be appropriate to make sure that the 
submissions requirements reflect exactly what you just said? Because it 
certainly reads otherwise, hence my concern and criticism. How about:

"HTML or any format is welcome... Authors may want to use tools like 
x,y,z to prepare their articles..."

I *sincerely* would like to understand your version of "simple":

What's "simple" about RASH? Because the acronym says "Simplified"? 
Handcoding type of simple? Or using a desktop tool to write the article, 
and then have it go through a bunch of conversion tools (in which I 
presume authors have to do it from command-line or use a 3rd party 
service) type of "simple"? Or something else that I'm completely missing?

What other tools did the chairs consider?

Thanks,

-Sarven
