 We are a small web publishing company which works very hard to ensure all
our web publishing efforts are consistent with the latest standards.
 However, if the standard contains patented software code and we are placed
at the risk of having to pay royalties on our web publishing efforts; we
will stop developing to the W3C standard. We would throw any support we
could behind efforts to develop an alternate, royalty free standard for web
documents if the W3C decides its future lies with major commercial interests
such as Microsoft, Sun, IBM and others.

 Sincerely Yours,

 Brian Clancey
