I am perturbed to hear that the <XMP> tag might be removed from HTML.  I use
it often to dump HTML output to a browser window - it is extremely handy.
With only the <PRE> tag, I'd have to do a regexp operation to replace angle
brackets, etcetera. 

What is the current status of a tag that will allow a pure text dump to the
browser window?

Thank you and I hope to hear from you.
