Not really.  But I could come up with something a little more plausible
than explaining why you would design a mockup -without- using HTML.  I
suppose the mildly plausible explanation would be that you wanted to
show how it rendered in your designed-with browser.

On the other hand, I've never heard of anyone designing a page mockup
that wasn't in HTML (possibly with CSS, Javascript, etc)... and I cannot
quite figure out why you would do such a thing.

I guess you chose not to read the suggestions that I made, or that many
other people made.  I don't reckon there's much else I can do... except,
of course, vigorously oppose use of this bad design.

Btw. What is this "commercial customer" thing you speak of?  Python is
guaranteed to remain Free Software.  It's not like the PSA is selling
"Python boxed sets"... which you seem to believe.

Yours, David...
