     Note that many of the WG that met in Brussels probably have been in 
    transit. I may be (almost) alone in arguing the point, but I'm not 
    outnumbered.

Roberto:
Ok.

  Matt: 
    It's also not about "hobbyists". It's about most of the authors on the 
    Web -- and the vast majority of existing authoring tools. You're 
    painting this as a small problem with some bad actors. Since it's been 
    my full-time job for the last three years to fix problems like this, I 
    can guarantee you that it is far more widespread. In fact, it's the 
    status quo. It's simply not something we can legislate away.

Roberto:
But at the same time we cannot help who develop without respect of DTD.

   Matt:
    Roberto, you do know that I'm the staff contact of the PFWG, right? I've 
    also spoken with one of the HTML WG co-chairs, and while he agrees that 
    it's a tough problem, he does recognize that this WG isn't here to 
    enforce his WG's specs, but to aid accessibility. I will also take this 
    to PF, but I think you're just shopping for someone who supports your 
    point of view.

Roberto:
I don't make shopping, i'm try to explain that we are going against web standards. And there are other web professional that have supported this.
    
Matt:   
 And again, silence is not authorization. How many times do I have to say 
    that?
    
Roberto:
Sometimes silence means to don't want to follOw a problem...

    Matt:
    Take it to AU. That's where discussion of authoring tool output belongs.
    
    In fact, I've done it for you.

Roberto:
And i've supported it.
