You are raising a valid and good point in my opinion. I don't know
enough about the difference between WK1 and WK2 (as I learned about
them only 3 weeks ago). But for an email client that want to display
html mail properly and want to display many of them at the same time,
what would be the solution that make more sense ? WK1 or WK2 ? This
question can be asked with a RSS client and so on.
