Right now I'm just going based on the date of the e-mails, oldest e-mail 
first, skipping past certain issues that are of lower importance (like 
getting the references right). I will be working on Web Forms 2 
integration relatively soon, which will take a while. I also prioritise 
folders with lots of pending input and deal with those occasionally.

However, if there is something that should be dealt with quicker, drop me 
a mail and I'll be happy to change the order to accommodate your needs.

I'm not sure what the current prioritisation of parser-level changes are 
in terms of the four major desktop browsers. If any of the vendors have 
any input here it would be quite helpful.

I am aware of two implementations of the parser model currently commented 
out in the spec, though, at least one of which is being used in a number 
of places.

Indeed I do.
