I thought your document to be especially useful and hope that the browser
people will listen.

1) intelligent handling of unclosed tags

If a document does not close important tags such as TABLE, then the client
should assume that the end of the document by default has those close tags
and attempt to display the content rather than miss it out. The client may
optionally inform the user that the page's markup is incorrect or

2) saving documents to local storage

The client should not attempt a conversion of files for CRLF mapping unless
the document is specifically of mime type text/plain or text/html.

The client should not decompress files on saving without offering the user
choice, whether or not it decompresses the files for viewing.

3) Font sizes and colours

The browser should allow the user to force larger fonts, and force the
foreground and background colours as well as background images; this is
especially important for users with eyesight impairment, and/or users of
restricted display technology.

thanks for your efforts,
