Thats better. Love the "communicate medium-neutral semantics" bit. So to
make it snappy how about,
"presentational elements have no place in a language
intended to communicate medium-neutral semantics"
To put it all together it would read:
"We, the undersigned, believe that -- given the de facto position
of HTML as /the/ primary markup language for the World Wide
Web -- it is essential that HTML evolve in such a way
as to ensure that the contents of any page in which it is
correctly used are potentially accessible to all, regardless
of the technology used to render the page, the primary medium
through which it is rendered, and the physical and/or cognitive
abilities of the person accessing the page. To this end,
we believe that HTML is, and must remain, a language through
which the /semantics/ of the page are expressed and presentational
elements have no place in a language
intended to communicate medium-neutral semantics."
Would that do? Or is the expression "presentation elements" not enough
to cover any other elements you can think of that are "indicative of the
intended appearance of the element in a visual medium"?
