"My" HTML document, the HTML 2.0 spec, is supposed to describe current
working practice with HTML. The HTML+ effort, led by Dave Raggett, is
supposed to add features to HTML to fix deficiencies etc.

                                                 HTML Spec: Publication History
                            PUBLICATION HISTORY[1]
                                       
    In reverse chronological order:
   
  1994 June: HTML 2.0 Spec Review; Dan Connolly and Tim Berners-Lee[2]
                         This is an effort to create a specification for use in
                         the near-term development of commercial
                         implementations of HTML. The plan is that it will be
                         published as an SGML Open Technical Report.
                         
   1994 April: HTML test suite; Dan Connolly[3]
                         The internet draft spec for HTML expired, and there
                         has been a lot of noise about a new spec. I've
                         collected a test suite of HTML documents and created a
                         DTD to parse them (with a few minor tweaks.)
                         
   Included are DTD for HTML[4] that reflects current practice, along with a
                         whole mess of HTML files I got from various places to
                         test it out[5]. This stuff has not been prepared for
                         distribution, but you can check out the Makefile[6]
                         for clues.
                         
  1993 November: HTML+ Discussion Document; Dave Raggett[7]
                          Dave Ragget is working on a successor to HTML called
                         HTML+. It is now supported by Bill Perry's w3 mode for
                         emacs and by tkWWW. My comments[8] on the HTML+ spec
                         are under development.
                         
  1993 July: <draft-ietf-iiir-html-01.txt[9], .ps> Berners-Lee and Connolly
                           Hypertext Markup Language (HTML): A Representation
                         of Textual    Information and MetaInformation for
                         Retrieval and    Interchange
                         
        This internet draft (now expired) was "sponsored" by the Integration of
   Internet Information Resources (IIIR) working group of the Internet
   Engineering Task Force (IETF).
   
   It was submitted as a specification for a MIME content type called
   text/html.
   
   1991  HyperText Mark-up Language; by Tim Berners-Lee [10]    Tim Berners-Lee
   originally drafted this as a somewhat informal reference on the HTML
   elements. The document has been edited continuously since then, with
   snapshots published through various means.
