From now on I am framing all web standards-type discussions with the question “what is it reasonable to demand that authors do”

It is reasonable to require authors to publish HTML. It is reasonable to require authors to add some simple microformats like rel-author, h-entry or h-card.

Just saw the mini maker fayre seagull model paraded in the street and had the strangest desire to salute
