During a meeting today, an idea surfaced for a new HTML tag that could be
very easy to implement, and would be a useful addition to the next version
of HTML.

The tags would be as follows:

<VO>This text is "View Only" -- and is not printed.</VO>

               and

<PO>This text is "Print Only" -- and is not displayed.</PO>

The reason for this could be summed up in the following brief scenario:

Many of our pages require the text "QUALCOMM PROPRIETARY. SHRED BIN
DISPOSAL ONLY."   Obviously this text need only appear on _printed_ pages,
not on screen.

Please indicate to me where I should send this idea, if not to you.

Thank you very much for reading this and thanks in advance for responding!
