Re: Hyperlinks: (1. Background)

| My point is only to agree that we need an <a> tag

Just to head off a possible misunderstanding, I don't think that there
is any suggestion that XML specify that the element <A> is a reserved
element having the semantics of the same element in HTML; I believe
that what is being proposed is that there be a way to specify that any
arbitrary element type has the link semantics of the HTML <A>.
