         Maybe I'm a purist (nah -- I'm definitely a purist), but this is 
an unacceptable situation to me. Links are put in documents for a reason, 
and authors deserve some sort of protection from stylesheet transformations 
that deform their content. I certainly don't want to -limit- the ability 
for stylesheet authors to be rid of links, but I think something needs to 
be standardized so that implementers think to allow some maintenance of 
links to occur. As it is, most folks I talk to haven't even considered this
