You appear to come from a community of thought which has no interest
whatsoever in the continuation of HTML.  Why exactly do you insist on
obstructing that continuation when there is another community that does
stand to benefit?

This is very mysterious to me.  I'm well-known for expressing my
negative opinions freely, but I don't go out of my way to contest things
which arguably have no effect on my particular interests. 


Again I am surprised by the lack of precision in your thought.

Nothing I have suggested is inconsistent with *HTML* having a future.

I don't view XHTML 2.0 as "HTML".

IE6 and below, Mozilla 1.x and below, Opera 7.x and below etc etc will continue to support *HTML*. I don't see that there is any realistic threat to HTML.
