Apologies for the late start today! I actually took a break last night 
and wound up watching a movie (Harry Potter) with Carol so I stayed up 
later than usual. Got up at the right time but then went to sleep in my 
big chair. Probably needed the rest.

Yes, <div type="x-div1"> for Monday. All we are doing is making the name 
type uniform for all elements, but retaining the special types for divs, 
notes, etc.

Should have an experimental version out by lunch today.
