|   For such cases, people might be *far* better off using PDF or RTF, or

But if the DTD included tags like product-id, product-vendor,
product-price, etc., then indexing tools could pick up the commercial
parts of the advertisement and build an appropriate super catalog of the
net, for instance.  So, I don't think PDF or RTF would be a better
choice - most advertisers want their data accessible andmeaningful
tagging is the key to intelligent accessibility.
