I agree.  Although at some sufficient level of abstraction WWW and HTML are 
separate topics, the two are so tightly intertwined (IMHO) that it is 
worthless for me to even bother to try personally archiving HTML messages 
separately from WWW messages -- they are all dumped in the same folder (MS 
Mail :)).  If HTML use on the Web drops to only a small percentage of total 
Web use, I for one will reconsider the split idea.
