<p><sentence>congratulations to the <proper><acronym
seperator="none">html</acronym> working group</proper>
for abstracting the typographic convention of italic
text</sentence> <sentence>but they have not gone far
enough</sentence> <sentence>it is unfortunate that
computers for so long have had the power to mix case
and use punctuation</sentence> <sentence>this was a
priority of course because this form of markup is
extremely important</sentence> <sentence>but that just
means that the semantic of this kind of markup should
be made more explicit</sentence> <sentence>thus
<firstpersonsingularpronoun>i</firstpersonsingularpronoun>
propose the banning of capital letters and punctuation
marks</sentence> <sentence><phrase>no doubt this will
cause some complaints</phrase> but seperation of
meaning from presentation is the holy
grail</sentence></p>
