For HTML 2.0, I have to agree with Dan that <NEW> is
not in practice today and cannot, therefore, be
included in the spec.
However, for 3.0 and beyond, I think that there
should be a mechanism for denoting changes
to a document, perhaps even with effectivity dates
attached so that a clever browser or server could
present a document
- as it is today
- as it was on a specified date
- with all additions and deletions present.
I don't think that <STRIKE> is the appropriate tag
to use to denote the "delete" semantic, as I beleive
that <STRIKE> is a typographic effect rather than
anything else. While it is true that <STRIKE> could
be associated with "delete", <STRIKE> could also be
associated with other semantics.
