Arlen quotes Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of HTML as saying:

That's an interesting comment. And I have to agree with Tim's final sentence.
The Web would never have taken off had HTML been some sort of object code. Of
course, Tim's life would probably be lots easier if it hadn't. And perhaps
that's what he means. ;->
