An attribute also needs to be added to the body tag to show that a document
is protected for revisions. This would inform the editor that any text added
to or removed from the document should be marked as revisions.

Subject: INS, DEL and Collaborative Document Design
I am planning a project to look at collaborative HTML document
development via the Web. I am thinking of using the proposed
HTML 3 elements INS and DEL to delineate the changes associated
with different versions or a document, with appropriate
attributes to reflect authorship, version numbers and so on.
This is because I need this information at the client side,
to allow toggling between different versions and so that much
of the document management intelligence can be built into
the client agent. But, I don't want to waste time
repeating what someone else may have already done, or waste
time on what has already been shown to be a *Bad Idea*.
Has anyone looked at integrating this type of functionality
into HTML or other markup languages?
