Anyone know of a good retrospective piece on the successes and failures of HTML and semantic markup?


Specifically, I'm hoping to find a piece on HTML's history and successes and failures as a *document* language, not as an application language. (Boosts welcome.)

@varx I don't know of anything specific, but I'd maybe start looking at ebooks, since they're probably the most prevalent use of (X)HTML outside the web?

(And something that got totally wrecked by monopolization and proprietary standards, for that matter.)

@alis Oh, that's interesting! I'll have to follow up on that. :-) Thanks!
