[DD, All: please choose between www-html-editor, w3t-ui, and
w3c-html-wg for *all* comments related to the HTML 4 spec.
I hereby disclaim all responsibility for tracking issues not sent
to at least one of those archived forums.

Note that I'm not subscribed to www-html-editor nor w3t-ui,
so if you want me to get the mail real-time (rather than
archived, in which case it's not guaranteed that I'll read it,
and somewhat inconvenient for me to reply)
you'll have to cc: me explicitly.]

Editors: I'm upgrading DD's request that WAI HC Group be
acknowledged to an Instruction From The Chair.
