Hmmm... I don't think there's a final word yet, but you can
look at the archives:

http://www.acl.lanl.gov/HTML_WG/archives.html

Hmmm... I can't find any threads on this subject specifically
(but I'm having some technical difficulty.)

In short: see if the META element will do the trick for your
application:

>Is this mailing-list related to html-wg at all?

Yes. This list is intended to discuss developments and new ideas
for HTML. Once an idea has got a little support, and somebody's
willing to write it up and try to push it through the standards
process, they take it to html-wg.

So while I'd like to minimize the "Please help me build my
homepage..." sort of discussion on this list, www-html is
intended to have a much wider variety and scope of discussion
than html-wg.
