Hello, all!

I'm new to this group, I'm not a card-carrying member of the W3C yet, =
but I'm a long time web page designer who would still like to see some =
of the most basic elements added to HTML...

Why is there no MARGIN (or equivalent) tag specification in the BODY =
section of HTML?  I'm tired of using topmargin=3D"" and leftmargin=3D"" =
for my margins in IE, and marginheight=3D"" and marginwidth=3D"" in =
Netscape  (I don't even know if Opera has a nonstandard margin tag!)...  =


We need a standard margin tag for the body section...

Another thing...  We need to standardize background music once and for =
all...  Plugins are not my favorite way of implementing this feature =
that is already implemented in IE with the nonstandard BGSOUND tag.

Thanks in advance if anyone here can get these suggestions through to =
the W3C.

-Joey
