Subject: HTML 3.0 & language tags/attributes

I have not kept up with the most recent developments in HTML.
There was a lot of talk about helping us all pop out of the
ISO 8859-1 straitjacket, either by extending HTML or by add-
ing Unicode as a possible overall charset in the header.

Was this just talk, or did something actually come of it?

Just curious.  Would be interested in contacting any individu-
als who are actively working on the standard and soliciting
views and opinions on this subject....
