Would it be a 'valid' activity for members of this list, being individuals
interested in the well-being of the web, the stability of the HTML spec,
etc. etc. to petition for certain things? I think a good example lies in the
thread about hyphenation. Support for hyphenation exists in HTML, and
justified text exists in CSS... but no browser agents (to my humbly limited
knowledge) can split up a word by sylables if it can't fit at the end of a
line the way desktop publishing software does.
If not, direct me to an organization that does involve itself more in what
browser-vendors support... the w3c may make a spec into a recommendation,
but new standards are only achieved when enough web browsers support them...
