I genuinely hate to toss around so many critical views and comments on 
this group -- but another deeply _negative_ relationship between HTML 
and TeX is that the creators of HTML, despite their coming at least inb

consider the possibility of incorporating TeX directly into HTML, as one 
of its supported formats.
