John,

The dates are not in error. I published the HTML 4.01 specification on
24 December. Then I went to a party. The next day, I published the
end note which states that HTML 4.01 supersedes HTML 4.0. The fact that
the date is 25 December doesn't matter. HTML 4.01 still supersedes HTML
4.0
and that's the important part. The fact that I didn't make available
that
information until 25 is only anecdotal.
