         Hurray for Sun! This is the kind of reaction that vastly 
encourages good relations among those of us developing standards work. And 
a special thanks to Eve for seeing this matter through.

         I think I'll be sleeping better this evening...and doubtlessly, 
even better once we see the final resolution of this matter. I'm convinced 
it'll be positive. I will certainly be submitting my own comments to the 
email address provided by Sun.
