> King Canute has always been a role model at the W3C. 

ObMemeSquashing:  Canute told the tide to stop coming in as an object
lesson to his courtiers, who had been treating him as divine.  He knew
damned well it wasn't going to obey him.

At the time he said: "Let all men know how empty and worthless is the
power of kings.  For there is none worthy of the name but God, whom
heaven, earth and sea obey."

In politics, obedience and support      John Cowan <jcowan@reutershealth.com>
are the same thing.  --Hannah Arendt    http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
