Welcome, Michael

Please note that the C binding will not form aprt of the official DOM 
TS, which contains ECMA and Java (the two official DOM bindings) only.

However, as the DOM TS group has said from the start, we encourage other 
bindings, as Curt pointed out earlier in the thread. I'll have to look 
in to where transforms to other bindings should reside. I'll get back to 
the list about this.

Nice to see that work is done in areas other than ECMA and Java.
