I take it you've never heard me rant on how HTML itself is a bloated
mess. :-)

To be honest, I'm not convinced we need anything past wikipedia-style
syntax for web pages. It has tables and everything. Shift
presentation to the client. Everything else is bloat... and harmful
bloat at that. Why does some guy that works for Company B get to tell
me what fonts and colors and layout my computer should use for content?

Just for the record, I'm actually a design student...
