Re: TAG Decision on Rescinding the request to the HTML WG to develop a polyglot guide

Henri, HTMLwg co-chairs and TAG and the editor (Eliot),

Let me state that I *can* live with Henri's proposed addition to 
Polyglot Markup.

I do agree that Polyglot Markup is not the only method for working with 
HTML in a XML tool chain, and I now agree that it is fair and 
potentially clarifying that it mentions that. In fact,  (depending on 
your glasses) there is already a brief mention of this in the 
introduction. Henri's proposed text could probably be worked into the 
existing wording there. 

I take back that specific rewording proposal(s) I made in the bug. If 
Eliot and Henri feel they can incorporate some of my perspective, then 
that's great, but I feel confident that whatever Henri proposes will be 
good enough. And in general, I regret that I did not more eagerly 
accepted Henri's attempt to create agreement.

Thanks for an interesting debate. I hope the participants also felt 
that came some good things out it.

With regards,
Leif H Silli
