Sure, I was just worried that it is counterproductive to argue the case with
them if they, as they appear to, do not want to understand the issue. It would
be different if the badges actually signified a certification from the W3C --
in which case the W3C would _have_ to follow up on the matter -- but as it
stands continuing to press for a change may only result in a balcanization.

But then I've only seen the parts of the conversation that were CCed here so
I'm probably completely off here. :-)

Well, you've got me there.   I have no idea what any of those have to do with
SGML. Next you'll be claiming that running NSGMLS constitutes an unauthorized
public performance of SGML.                                  -- Richard Tobin
