Toby -

I really think that answer completely ignores the fundamental issue that
these folks have. To make it clear, they are extremely angry that the
*current* HTML efforts ignore this kind of work. They want a way to do
things in a valid, conforming, and "approved" fashion in a current standard,
that does not require all sorts of hoops to jump through.

Like I said, I don't expect anything to come of this in this group. But I
can tell you that many parts of the public "at large" is pretty unhappy with
the direction HTML has been headed in, because they feel that it has lost
its focus on creating documents in favor of becoming an application

If it's currently valid HTML 3.2 or valid HTML 4.01, then it will
continue to be valid HTML 3.2 or valid HTML 4.01.
