Pilgrim’s protest

Mark Pilgrim has lost his temper about the W3C abolishing a couple of tags in the XHTML specification. I don’t understand why. That may not be news. I understand, at best, about half of what I read on his site: this is hard core programming and web design, written by an expert for other experts, but how else does one learn except by eavesdropping and experiment? Still, in this instance, he claims they have dropped two tags whose usefulness he daily illustrates: references. But when I follow these up, I discover that the missing tags are there all along: although <Q> is now <QUOTE>. But the example <QUOTE>shown uses <CITE> as well. Very odd.
