Hi Tantek,

  You remember our discussion around HTML Tidy's lack of support for
multiple URIs in the HTML profile="" attribute. I'm happy to tell you
the HTML Working Group resolved the problem in the XHTML M12N 1.1 PR
by further prohibiting multiple URIs; the rationale they provide is

  "The datatype for the profile was indeed changed to URI in M12N on
  purpose, specifically so that it would be possible to use it as a
  possible means to identify compound document profiles in the future."

Now, they didn't really change it since it never allowed multiple ones,
but as you can see, in the end my forward-looking refusal to support
multiple ones payed off!

regards,
