Dear Sirs,

I have a suggestion which can be incorporated in
future versions of XHTML.

When I was working on an application to develop
technical manual of some equipment, which were finally
to be posted on the net for reference, I found a
limitation of HTML.

Scanning information whether it is text or diagrams or
pictures there is no problems. But when it comes to
the circuit daiagrams I faced severe problems. Some of
the circuit diagrams are so big,that after scanning
and posting on the page they become unreadable. I

Finally to complete my job, I had to use ADOBE ACROBAT
READER to make use of Document zooming facility. I had
to convert whole Job to PDF format. By this I have
lost the charm of HTML and readers cannot access them
from net. 

Can this suggestion be taken seriously and be included
in the future versions, so that clients can include a
zoom tool in the browser. This will have tremendous
implications for some of the applications on hte web.

Plase do reply me in this regard.

Yours faithfully,

Srikanth Joshi
