Subject: Re: Data-Type Definition & Formatting (Was: Future of HTML)

I'd like to point out that an HTML architecture solves this problem in a
more general way by allowing authors to use whatever elements they want in
their own document's DTD.  So if one wishs to add a DATATYPE element, then
one is free to do so.  CSS is general enough to work with whatever
elements the user wishes to add.
