Subject: ISSUE: addHighlight and clearHighlight

when working on the implementation of the addHighlight and clearHighlight behaviors, we ran into one restriction that is not yet mentioned in the spec.
Both behaviors make sense only, if they are sent to an existing viewer control, e.g. by using a DOM call.
They do not make sense if used in a link that creates a viewer control, for example
<p> some text <a href="mycgm.cgm#id(myID,addHighlight)" target = "someFrame">link text </a> </p>
Any such link will be processed by the HTML browser, and it will first delete whatever it finds in "someFrame", and then it will call the MIME type handler for this type of content. So even if there was an existing CGM viewer in "someFrame", it will get deleted before this link gets executed.
The wording of the spec needs to be changed to reflect this.
