I note this is just a send of the information in the note, could you
please provide me with information as to when you first sent me this
so I can find out why I had not recieved, and where it was archived (a
link to a member only list will be fine, the pointer will allow me
reference it at a later date.)

If this is in fact not a resend but the first, then please explain why
the WG failed to formally address the issue without being prompted. 
Will I need to prompt the you about other issues I have currently
outstanding with the HTML WG?

As I have explained, there is no mechanism for the author to control
the rendering in CSS environments, that is compatible with the two
views.  I reject the issue as there is no technical way an author can
achieve the required sizing if they do have different sizes.

If I have missed something and there are appropriate mechanisms in
place in XHTML 2.0, please make these more explicit in the
specification, and please point me to the link.
