In my opinion, HTML needs a lightweight way of making frame-like 
headers and footers for navigation buttons, etc. It could be laid out 
like:
<fixedheader 
	height="autofit" 
	border="3" borderstyle ="2d" bordercolor="grey"> 
<a href="wherever"><img src="backbutton.png"></a>

This allows a very common function to be done inline and saves 
time/effort/bandwith.

also, please include tab and spacer elements.

<tab-set foo="4em" bar="8em"...>
<tab foo>
<spacer width="40" height="1">

They would be very useful in converting word processor documents to
HTML. 

Another thing occurs to me: in tables, you could allow a <vrule> 
element to draw a separator line.
