I'm inclined to think that HTML mark-up does not belong anywhere in MARC records, but am looking for other opinions (preferably with the reasoning behind the opinions), both pro and con.
A couple of quick questions:
(1) When you say "HTML" which version of HTML are you using?
(2) What tool are you using to validate the HTML inside the MARC?
(3) Since HTML can use character encodings that MARC doesn't understand,
how are you escaping the non-ASCII characters in the HTML?
