(Forgive the non-elagance of these comments, its late :)

Howdy, just finished reading through the HTML+ RFC, and have a few comments
about it.

1) The specification allows </> to be a valid end tag for all tag's. I feel
this is a mistake as it leades to great ambiguity when the document is bein
parsed automatically, or being read by a human.

2) It appears that both the <img> and <fig> tag should be rolled into one, as
both accomplishes esentially the same thing.

3) Physical styles should remain seperate tag's as they are currently
implemented in HTML. (I.e <b> instead of <em b>). The <em> tag should refer
exclusivly to logical role's, and not physical styles.

(How come I have this dreaded feeling im about to be flamed? :)
