[Foundation] Text Formatting JIG

Well, yes, it's about XHTML/CSS formatting of messages. However, I do
*not* feel we should be using XHTML forms for forms support in Jabber. 

They should be done with a separate namespace...
http://docs.jabber.org/draft-proto/html/forms.html

The XHTML support in Jabber messages is XHTML-Basic, and I feel we
should definitely keep as minimalistic an implementation as possible. If
there is a genuine reason to use extended features of XHTML, then we'll
make other namespaces for that. The current target, however, is as wide
an audience as possible.

Is there something wrong with the current forms draft that you don't
like? It can be used for more things than just registration of agents
and such.
