We must remember that it is not just HTML which has to become more and more sophisticated, it is also the browsers. Compared to what browsers should be, todays brows are somewhat primitive. They should be able to support the printing of documents with all possible features including indexing, table of contents, cross-references etc. After all we shouldn't be using the terms "documents" and "pages" for the contents available on the web just because we didn't have any other term for them. In other words, what I am trying to convey here is that people should be able to put their creativity (novels, reports, magazines, books etc.) on the Net and expect that if they are ever printed, they appear as good as any other conventionally printed material. I think tags like <block> go against the spirit of HTML and at best they are 'physical styles'. We never specify that <H1> should be big and bold, it is upto the browsers. Ankur.
