The fundamental problem is that HTML is brain-dead. There are tips
and tricks to bypass various problems, but HTML was never designed
for formatting in the first place. The authors of the Web assumed
that you would use HTML for something stupid then use a link to
download a fully formatted (DTP) document.

Alas, reality is gradually bypassing the original intent....
