I think HTML will ever really die, just get pushed back like BASIC getting
pushed back by C++. C++ is more complicated, and all advanced programs use
it, but basic is still there for simple things. The same thing will happen
with HTML. Maby it will die like PASCAL or COBAL, but not for a few years.
When Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer drops support for it, It will
be dead.
