Hi Ian,

The Chairs discussed this. Setting aside the technical issue, your  
message here is rude to Julian. Upon review, your response to him in  
the bug was also inappropriately dismissive. No matter what you may  
think of his issue, it is clearly important to him. And we as a  
Working Group are obliged to respond to every comment with an adequate  
technical response. Rudeness like this is not ok.

For The HTML WG C-Chairs
(Paul Cotton, Sam Ruby, Maciej Stachowiak)
