Nonetheless, HTML parsers are on the order of 1000 lines of C code.
An annotated source listing of an HTML parser wouldn't be nearly 660

But it sounds like the working group is against this change.

Fair enough. Less work for me (in the short term.)

I guess I'll defer this work -- put it in an "HTML implementors guide"
as suggested (and as I started back in Jan of 1992).
