This just cannot make sense, the presentation DOES affect the meaning.
(bold is used as illustration not intention).


My concern as usual is that members are allowing themselves to get too far
away from the common person. And that person's ability to use the tools.

It is all very well Al not wishing  a "total disconnect between our
set of rules and the Web run by money."
Who is the code being written for the end users or the middle men?
If accessibility is just a sop to salve the conscience of the money men
count me out.
