@ With regards to justification, Chris Wilson and I were talking about how

@ tag. We came up with the idea for an <align></align> tag, with a ROLE
@ attribute, that can be center|right|left|justify|indent, just like the
@ align tag on <p> and <h?>. I mentioned this to eric bina in chicago as an
@ alternative to the <center></center> tag, since it is much more extensible.
@ Wouldn't want to have to have <right></right>, <justify></justify>, and
@ <indent></indent>. :)

Out of curiousity, how would this be different than adding align to
<br>? This would be a simpler change to the DTD and would mirror the
align in <p>.
