What does "inline code" mean? I am comfused. Do you mean it is a method
that both the browser and the server undetstand well and can be used as
a programming language or shell language to perform very complexed 
behavior.

I think it is impossible, as there is no language which is platform 
independent enough across the whole World Web. If there is, the Web
can become the OS of next century, I can say, and there will be no 
DOS and Windows, no Microsoft, no IBM, only Web and thousands of computer
makers who support Web.

The Web is so WONDERFUL, and it will be more WONDERFUL if we do agree on
a language all the browsers and servers can understand and run it.

Are there any orgnization work on it?
