Although Amaya 6 and 7 are predominant in the general
population of users in North America,  site developers
are using conformant css and html to create new pages....

And Amaya is targeted to those authoring, not viewing pages.
If Amaya was more WYSIWYG, there would be a greater
number of people willing to add it to their toolbox.... 

My wish is that Amaya would render documents in
a manner that most would see them ....
