Please don't misunderstand my motives. I too have considerable
respect for Karl, and have frequently seen him supporting "our"
position against "them". But on this occasion I felt his
analysis was incorrect, and responded. As Karl saw fit
to move the correspondence off WWW-HTML, the best way
to ensure that others in HTML4All were aware of it was
to re-send it to this list. There was no intention of
"[holding] it up as though it was something that should upset
people" but rather of "holding it up as a point of disagreement
on which others might wish to comment" (as you have so
admirably done !).
