Apologies, i hadn't caught up with that resolution about not being 
concerned editorially about favouring XML over HTML in the draft. So we 
don't need the neutral names after all. My apologies to Olaf for sending 
you on the wrong track there.

We do however still need the table to show the correspondences between 
the XML and HTML attributes.

We also wanted it to help track any differences that arise between the 
attributes available in the XML and HTML versions of each data category.

So I think we need to maintain the table still for the time being.

cheers,
Dave
