Too bad a good deal of servers (this does not include the CERN HTTPD) ignored the "write" half. Talking about Symposia, I was quite disturbed by their "strict" enforcement of the DTD, which IMHO is a lot more strict than the DTD itself. For instance, when you edit a document you wrote "manually", using tag and attribute omission extensively, Symposia will try to infer the missing tags and attribute. Moreover, it will do so poorly : I have seen some of my document badly corrupted by thhese insertions. Then again, the concept is very good, and what I've seen was just a beta version. Oh, talking about wild dreams : I hope one day the full power of the LINK tag will be used ! Cheers, Christophe.
