Lots and nope.  I think you're doing a great job with HTML,
particularly in that HTML+ will greatly enhance the capabilities of
WWW systems; it will get a lot of use and I look forward to supporting
it, as I've said before.  But I would think that whether or not SGML
had anything to do with it or not, and I think it will be useful
to more people if SGML isn't allowed to philosophically restrict it
(similar to the way HTML became more useful with <I> and <B>).
