Did you notice in your development of an WYSIWYG HTML editor things  
from the specification that
	- were very difficult to implement?
	- were missing in the HTML language itself to make it easier to  
control the editing?

Bonus question:
	Do you think that there are needs outside of HTML itself, but needed  
for authoring HTML, and would need to be shared among an authoring  
tools community?
