Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Well, it didn't exactly happen on purpose, but it wasn't entirely an accident either.  After introducing an HTML to Rich text conversion engine in 3.10, and improving it in 3.20 and 3.30, it is time to "fish or cut bait".  The conversion is pretty good, but pretty good usually isn't good enough for our customers, so we have started on an intense improvement scheme to bring the HTML to Rich Text conversion in Midas up to the quality of the Rich Text to HTML conversion, which is widely praised and widely used.  It happens that four different companies have had particular issues, and have started submitting issues through a simple database I set up that lets us quickly reproduce and fix problems.  The four don't know each other, and have no special mandate except for a shared interest in HTML imports, but I think of them as the "SWAT team".

So, to be fair and egalitarian (and maximize the chance of getting a real humdinger of a conversion engine quickly), I thought I'd ask if anybody else is interested in being part of the unofficial SWAT team.  Just drop me an e-mail if you would.
