If the article on www.linuxtoday.com is accurate, then I feel
I must protest in the strongest possible terms at the proposal for
the W3C to endorse royalty-based standards. This amounts to a serious
attack on the ability of Open Source software to be used in web-related
applications - particularly ironic considering that the web had its roots
in that same Open Source ethos.
