Hello Jim,

Thank you for your report. I'm sure the people from W3C will look into

which was made by W3C, and I can't edit it.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
