I would prefer C because after all most of the tags are enclosing text of
one form or another, so TEXT is not a very helpful name. Character-level
formatting as opposed to paragraph-level formatting seems clearer. But
perhaps that is my FrameMaker background coming through.

I think we will see a lot of documents in the future using <p class°o> and
<c class║r> type markup.
