    Thanks. I believe some of the fallback concerns that <format> 
addresses were originally brought up by you in the mailing list.

    The one thing that still concerns me about my <format> suggestion is 
how browsers should parse the contents of a <format> element. We don't 
want different browsers processing the string differently, yielding 
browser-dependent date/time formats. Any suggestions?
