That is exactly that - how far do you want to go? I am afraid, looking at W3C's site, that something is wrong with so called "standards" :-) Lot's of stuff which can be actually combined onto page to make certain functionality working, so what to implement and what to obey and still have usable webpage navigation? I think it could become tricky. OTOH - how you will support such single thing as multiple color text per face? (although maybe there could be some other solution) Simply put - I think (and you don't need to share my opinion), that any partial result will be seen as failure to correct browser functionality. I would really like to see ability to have link on my website, which would bring in rebol player and run the package ... I am not sure it is doable without RT's assistance ... do you think it is? -pekr-
