Re: Adding a warning to Working Drafts pointing to Editor's Drafts

To: Maciej Stachowiak <mjs@apple.com>

Here's a suggested slight tweak to the warning wording, to highlight the fact that the Editor's Draft may have additional bug fixes, which seems like the key thing we are trying to convey to implementors. Any objections to this version?

---------
"This is a work in progress! 

For the latest updates from the HTML WG, possibly including important bug fixes, please look at the <a>editor's draft</a> instead."
---------

Regards,
Maciej
