I agree with Chris on this. I would love to see Sword be able to send valid
XHTML to the front-ends. That's really the way to go. I'm coming at this
from the content creation side of things, the ability to have a rich
environment like Mozilla to create for would be very nice. I say "XHTML"
because I think we should emphasize separating structure from style to keep
the content as portable as possible.
