Hi Jacob, and welcome to the WHATWG.

Have you read https://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/FAQ#Is_there_a_process_for_adding_new_features_to_a_specification.3F ? In particular, it seems you've jumped straight to step 7. Can you instead start with steps 1 and 2, and describe the problems you are trying to solve? As far as I can tell they are something to do with databases and having a specific existing server-side architecture full of .frm files that you need to adapt to, and other files that I think you want to display inline. There are well-studied solutions for these sort of problems, and I'd encourage you to first describe your problem in detail, so that we can guide you toward existing solutions.

Subject: [whatwg] Proposal for a new standard for HTML


I've beenhaving a really hard time getting even my simplest website ideas implemented. I've done some html coding in the past, but I don't have a reallyextensive knowledge of it.  I came up with a more innovative way to codehtml, but I haven't found any resources to get the idea implemented as astandard.  I propose two new tags, being <source>, and<destination> for use with object-oriented html code.


Allobject types, being apps, forms, gifs, images, record, and member data would beretrieved from database, or folder records by the <source> tag.

IE:<source [type]/#coord#/db_server/target_folder/source_object>.


The<destination> tag would be utilized for directing output to fourdestination types, being display, link, record, or member destinations.

IE: <destination [type]/db_server/target_folder/destination_record>


Formelements are created as standard html code, by means of an html generator, orby means of a draw application as images.  A draw application would embedthe images with a numbered name tag, and a single centered text line for input,within the image span.  The elements are stored as a single form file withthe extension .frm.  These form records are essentially html objects,which are retrieved by the <source> tag.  The data that is inputinto the form fields by users is extracted, and stored as record data in adatabase, or folder, by the <destination> tag, for reuse as member data.


Data thatis input into fields can also be displayed directly onto the screen coordinatewith attributes that are set in the <destination> tag.





On next_page.html:

<source record/display>

<source record/db_server/target_folder/content.txt>


The plussign at the end appends multiple <destination> tags, for useof multiple destination types, and instructions, sequentially in one destination block.


SourceTypes:  App/Form/Gif/Image/Record/Member

DestinationTypes:  Display/Link/Record/Member

Source isfor retrieval of content from html records.

Destinationis for output, and storage of content from html records, and user input.

Displayis the display clipboard record, which contains the display text/imageinformation stored sequentially, with the corresponding coordinate tags (display record memory is cleared immediately after use).

Member isthe path record, which contains all of the member’s tagged information sequentially, for use per user session as a variable, for retrieval of member information (IE: <name>, <addr>, <age>, <dob>, <club>, etc...).

Please don't hesitate to reply with any questions, or comments.
