How not to fix HTML

Joe Clark has some serious grievances towards the way things are driven, either by the W3C or the WHAT-WG, and I can relate to that. He’s got some good points, like this one:

This is a classic problem in HTML development: The people doing the work are geeks with computer-science interests who do not understand, for example, newspapers, or screenplays, or, really, print publishing in general.

And this is one of the reasons why I like spip: the only CMS that thinks in editorial terms, not in geeky database-based terms.
