I just spent a while stufying the <INSERT> tag proposal at
<http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/WD-insert.html>

This seems to me to be perfectlyu extensible for the inclusion of
other text files, as we have recently discussed.

Now, my serious question is, at this time could one simply use

<insert
	data="http://www.mysite.com/path/file.html"
>
</insert>

I don't *think* so from my reading, but I'm looking for other input.

What about this?

<insert
	type="text/html"
	data="http://www.mysite.com/path/file.html"
>
</insert>

If it isn't possible, wouldn't this be a worthwhile extension to the 
<INSERT> capability?
