Looks good, a definite improvement. What about the table of contents? But
more importantly, this list has been doing a lot of talk regarding the
future of HTML, and perhaps the time to implement these future changes
should be now, in the HTML Primer.

Like mentioning the <HTML><HEAD>....</HEAD><BODY>......</BODY></HTML> tags,
and their importance for the future.

Many html document creators get their feet wet using the HTML Primer as a
guideline (I know I did). I'd like to see more direction from the Primer
about "proper" HTML markup so as to avoid having to go and change
everything to conform with HTML+, or proper HTML for that matter.

Is this possible? Can Dan Connolly or other front runners in the HTML
scene lend a hand?
