Hi, yep time will solve most problems ;-)).

All the other versions were not offical release, these were test-versions. So I keep the version number the same.

Yes, why not. I just want to keep the footer as small as possible. How about adding a link to the W3C validator for the XHTML text?

POST what? The generated page? Hmmm... That would be nice.

Nice idea :-). So the docs become itself executable. It remembers me of the SOM concept once propageted by IBM, where a document contained the code (or references to code) for editing the document. But you just passed around the document not the editor. What I'm going to try out with /Link is to install MDP as a sevice and give source documents the extension .mdp clicking on such a file will tranform it into HTML and let you view it immediatly.

Good idea. I try to keep MDP as compatible as possible and of course always have a workable version at my web-site. Thanks for the feedback. Robert
