Getting there, from what I here. If you're already using decent HTML and
CSS together, XHTML is either not that big a step or not that necessary
a step, depending on how you look at it. :)

My memory is fading, so I might well get it wrong, but I *think* I was
arguing for a unified namespace for footnotes and link targets, such
that auto-numbered footnotes could be named and normal links could be
used to target them. Useful enough? :P
