To paraphrase Howard Harawitz:

There are 10s of millions of people using MS Windows. They now use MS
Word. They like MS Word and want to create Web pages the way they now
create MS Word documents. Therefore, to satisfy these users, we should
add a few formatting commands to HTML.

Homework Question 1: What's wrong with this picture?
Homework Question 2: What happens if you substitute "thousands" for
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "millions" and "LaTeX" for "MS Word"? (Your answer
should take into account the percentages of MS Word users and of LaTeX
users who will actually be on the Web within the next year.)
