I was proposing a really simple markup language.  I call it content markup language (CML).  It implements a simple object-oriented content markup infrastructure which treats every page element as an object.  It consists of a simple batch html infrastructure with only four batch file types for forms, fields, menus, and submenus (.frm/.fld/.mnu/.smn).  The batch html files would consist of line sequencing for access to specified lines within batch files.  CML consists of two main tags, being <source>, and <destination>, and five standard tags, being <bmp>, <frm>, <fld>, <mnu>, and <smn>.  All form, and menu objects would be bitmap image objects.  All text objects would be text data.  All other objects would be treated in the standard manner, but would be applied at the corresponding page coordinate.  Appending subtags to the main tags would be done by the plus sign at the end of the main tag.  As far as I know, the table, and field html elements are bitmap objects, so I think they can be implemented easily as form field objects, or menu objects.  I think this would simplify the whole markup language infrastructure.  As far as I can tell, it doesn't require anything else for use for sophisticated web development.  I have a PDF diagram I can send out, in case anyone wants a better picture of the proposal.Thanks,Jacob
