Hi

the old one is the "old one" :-) so you're shielded. I can indeed tell
that the new one is volunteer work. I am just not sure it is in the
best interest of W3C to be looking like that.

i do know that the financial situation of w3c is what it is, but i
think this would pay itself almost immediately
end of advices, thanks for listening.

cheers
giovanni
