To whom it may concern,
	I am emailing to voice my concern and stern disagreement with
your proposed implementation of charging monies for the use of common
web standards. To do so would undermine what little ground we have
finally gained in the movement to move toward open standards, allowing
for more opportunity for all. If you implement this 'royalty', you will
alienate a development community that will gladly dump your standards in
favor of something free, and throw their support behind opposing efforts
- so choose your actions carefully.
	Thank you for your ear, and I hope that you consider my
thoughts. thank you.
