Since Dan says the membership of both lists is the same, all on the
public-html list surely get the announcements as well?

Several members have stated they struggle to (or are unable to) read
every message on public-html.  Separating out announcements provides a
way of highlighting them, so people can make sure they don't miss them.
(For example, I have public-html filtering into a folder I check when I
have time but public-html-wg-announce going straight to my inbox so I
always see those, and in reasonable time.)

public-html-wg-announce is the recipient list, not the sender; the
sender will be Dan or whoever made the announcement, so that string
won't be among either the subject or the sender.

Does SeaMonkey allow searching the full headers?
