Why must HTML be the be-all and end-all of the World-Wide Web?  

HTML, SGML, PDF, HyperTex, Common Ground, MacroMedia, Java and other 
formats will all find their place in the end.  A combination of 
approaches will surely be more satisfactory for everyone involved 
than a single media type that tries to be all things to all people.
