HTML is at version 4.01 to be precise, but that is precisely off-topic. 
This discussion has being going on for long enough. It is held in a 
large crosspost to newsgroups that have nothing to do with HTML or the 
evolution of Usenet. The bottom line is that most Usenet users like it 
the way it is now, and it certainly serves it's purpose. The Web and 
Usenet should not mix as they are two distinct entities and merging them 
would lose some of their distinctive qualities, making the Internet a 
poorer place.

I suggest letting the matter rest or taking it to a more appropriate 
newsgroup.
