This seems like a good time of the year to ask what would be your wish
list for the next generation of HTML. My list is actually quite short and
it does not include the like of java, etc. :-)

1. A reaonable means of adequately identifying a text document giving it a
"front page" (meta information seems to be the best canditate);

2. A way of expressing formula and mathematical information within HTML

3. Being able to present more than one alphabetic system in a single
document, eg Greek and English or Cyrillic and Vietnamese, etc so as to
make dictionaries, language exam papers, textual criticism, etc a HTML
reality (has no one asked for this?)

4. Some resolution of URC.

So what do you think?
