Dear Theo,

i was very happy to read your statement. This beause i know it from 
Latin America.

But the theme is "fixing issues of the internet" and this means the 
transport and not the application layer. Of course, you can say, if we 
have a bad transport system, we have many problems in the application layer.

HTML is part of the application layer and have nothing to do with the 
transport layer, the "internet". Also, how many confuse libraries you 
use is a question in the application layer.

many greetings, willi
