I think you may have misunderstood my comment. I was not suggesting that 
HTML4 be included (as indeed it already was); I was suggesting that 
although HTML4 does indeed have _some_ good examples, it also has a number 
of very poor examples, and might therefore not be the best specification 
to use to demonstrate how editors should write their documents.

I am not happy with the current resolution, but do not consider it a 
serious problem and would accept it if the working group still disagrees.

Cheers,
