I think that's probably where we part company.   I suspect most of us  
here consider the use of HTML "class" for semantic information fully  
in line with the both the letter and spirit of the spec, and thus an  
entirely natural usage.

If you consider *that* an unfortunate hack, then we're probably  
arguing from fundamentally different premises and unlikely to reach  
any sort of meaningful conclusion. :-)
