Once upon a time C. M. Sperberg-McQueen shaped the electrons to say...

Yes, go look at the <INSERT> proposal.  There is actually much more to
it than just "hey, go get this".  And <INSERT> is already being worked
on by all the major players.  I just used it because:
1. It exists.
2. It seems like a trivial bit to add to it with all it already does.

<INSERT> allows for inclusion of parameters for applets, all kinds of
embedded info, scripts, etc.  And it is extensible.

Although I work for Livingston Enterprises Technical Support, I alone am
responsible for everything contained herein.  So don't waste my managers'
time bitching to them if you don't like something I've said.  Flame me.
