Since this is a discussion based on technical issues related to the
HTML WG, and began in the HTML WG, I'm not sure why it has been sent
to the archives mailing list. The switching back and forth can make
one dizzy.

It can also badly fragment a discussion--making it difficult for
people on this list to understand the context of the communication. I
have found that emails taken out of context are so easily

Regardless, a better use of my time would be spent on a more detailed,
and more formal communication. Perhaps you'll find answers to your
questions in it.

Thank you
