| What Andrew meant was "would allow".  He's referring to

What David meant was "not accepted" rather
than "currently rejected" :-P.

I never heard that anyone here rejected them.

In fact %% units are used heavily now in
HTMLayout specific domains -
builtin html used for UI automation - pretty much
in the same domains where XUL is used now.

BTW: in my Harmonia Project [1] (open source)
builtin (quasi) HTML engine uses %%  calculations
instead of standard percents. So there are no
percents-of-container-width there at all. Just
percents-of-free-space.
