Mike,

Re: polyglot markup. With apologies, I can see that I'm covering old
ground, and asking questions that you've already answered. I belatedly
found some old threads on this subject in the 2013 archives of this mailing
list, such as "The non-polyglot elephant in the room" and "NU’s polyglot
possibilities".

I'm still mystified by the apparent lack of interest from a significant
number of v.Nu users in such functionality, though.

Which is more useful:

1. An XML syntax for HTML that allows documents that are not conformant
HTML (the current XML syntax for HTML).

2. An XML syntax for HTML that constrains documents to be conformant HTML
(polyglot).

I think the answer is 2.

However, it seems that horse bolted long ago. Or rather, I'm beating a
deceased parrot. ;-)
