I'd reverse the order. We want folks to use the "least common
denominator" at first, then migrate to the runtime-specific tag only
after discovering a runtime-specific requirement.
I'd also be explicit that we don't enforce the limited tag support in
<text> when running in DHTML -- this is a bug that should be filed
(can you do that, John?), but that we won't be fixing for this release.
We *could* look into injecting minor tweaks into the <text> output
for DHTML to match Flash more exactly, but I haven't looked at the
code so I can't comment on feasibility. Max?
