I needed to express the seriousness of the situation.  Unfortunately, 
Microsoft's monopoly, and the fact that he is a co-chair of this WG, 
puts Chris Wilson and IE in a very dangerous and influential position 
that could, if he gets his way, seriously undermine the work of the 
HTMLWG, the WHATWG and the web standards community at large.

I do not intend to be overly antagonistic, but Chris Wilson and the IE 
team need to comprehend the situation, and understand that nothing good 
can come from their failure to co-operate reasonably.
