    I haven't been on this list long( 2 days - 48 hrs ), but what I've
seen
relates to HTML. If you don't consider HTML-based products as HTML,
then I guess you're right. But everything else has been relevant.

 Too bad - I hope your fall is not too far! :> I'm staying. Although
the
list is not pure theory, like comp.database.theory, it still has good
technical substance. Besides, the list is only as good as it's
contributors make it - go ahead and talk HTML!

Already tried that. Virtual knowledge is much more challenging!
