that's an interesting idea, morbus

but those tags do work   ;o(

(confirmed in ie5 and netscape6)

it's not like the doctype turns them off (i wish)

perhaps you meant to say the tags "shouldn't" work

but they do

right, all the styling attributes, even entire tags, are gone

as a data guy, i love this separation of structure and style -- 
data being similarly all about "what" and not about "how"

but i'm curious -- what did you have in mind when you said
"and oh so much more"?

very good question

i dunno either, although i have heard that

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

can cause problems and for the time being is optional
