On your last reply: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.

Hey Domenic,I'm trying to get some information on how to implement some new tags/attributes on the backend.  I would like to know if my only option is the use case discussion, or if there are other resources for getting it done.  I don't think what I proposed would require an existing server-side architecture full of .frm files.  I've sent out some other messages, you can find them on the mail archive to get a better picture of what I proposed as a solution for form, and menu creation in html.  The .frm/.mnu files can be created by means of a simple text editor, like with html.  They are created with the source paths for content.  The source is called up by means of a source tag, and redirected for storage by means of a destination tag.  It's really simple, but I'm not sure if it would require a full specification to be implemented by the html guys, www guys, or what.  Let me know what you think.Thanks,Jacob
