Haven't read the discussion until now (will do that tomorrow) but let
me add F and cast the first vote in favor of it:
F) HTML that reverts back to usable ASCII (although I'm willing to
live without headers/footers and the whitespace may look a bit
different as long as it's self-consistent) when everything between <
and > is removed from the file and a very limited set of &*; sequences

I am in class E. I find being required to edit documents in
