Our current discussion schedule
For those of you who don't have access to the Web and can't see our
public W3C SGML activity page, and who therefore may be confused by
the recent discussion of CSS vs. DSSSL and may be thinking that we
are uncertain about what we are supposed to be doing now, I quote the
relevant section below. (The corresponding section that I quoted in
an earlier message was from the original activity page posted last
June. The excerpt below is from our current activity page, which is
dated October 4.)
<h3>Activities within the W3C</h3>
<p>The W3C has formed an SGML Working Group made up of SGML experts

<p>Specific deliverables under development by the SGML WG/ERB include:
<li>A specification for a simplified version of SGML suitable for
Internet applications. Target delivery: draft by the SGML 96
Conference (November 1996).

applications. Target delivery: draft by the WWW6 Conference (April
<li>Public text and extensions needed to apply the DSSSL stylesheet
