Is "it's complicated" not a good reason?
People like me (who use computers in order to work in a more
effective way) easily get a headache of computer stuff being too
complicated and actually not making working faster at all (because
you spent most of the time learning how a tool works and once you
have learned that there's suddenly a NEW tool which is claimed
to be a better one).
From a user's perspective, the world of computer people is CRAZY very
ABSURD world full of buzz words you (an alien) don't really understand.
I keep repeating to myself "Cat, consider it as a linguistic problem,
consider it as a linguistic promlem" and that's probably why I have
survived so far. ;-)

Well, you can do a nice-looking version with just simple HTML
tags that ANY browser will understand. (A buggy browser or not,
who cares, most programmes have bugs.)

Thank you very much, this would be very helpful.
