Recommendations for a preprocessor attribute in HTML
Ramon Casha <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My recommendation is for the inclusion of a new element to allow
preprocessors to alter HTML text prior to publication or prior to
sending via HTTP. The element I am proposing is .... User agents would be
expected to ignore the tag and render its contents in the normal way.
Preprocessors which encounter a tag should check the
'command' attribute, and only process the tag if they recognise and are
able to handle the relevant command. One application of such a tag would
be ..., which would
embed the contents of 'local-filename' between the opening and closing
tags, replacing the previous content. Another application would be for
translating form-resources into HTML forms.
