While I'm aware of that contribution, I'm curious what GenCode itself
was trying to accomplish. My rapidly-fading memory suggests that a
single tag set was a key (though not accomplished) goal, and someone was
even speaking of "the shadow of GenCode", though I'm no longer sure in
I did find this slide on "Conclusions of the GenCode Committee":
It seems to concur with my own thoughts about markup, but that may be
the result of my absorbing here for a long time.
