  you have to do it.
  send mail to www-html-request@w3.org with unsbscribe in the subject line..
  it tells you that in the subscription confirmation you got when you first

OK, Smarty, I tried that and this is what happend:


You have not been removed, I couldn't find your name on the list.
What I did find were the following approximate matches:

  1 www-html-d@www19.w3.org            24009 www-html-request@www19.w3.org
177 lwb@avaloninc.com                  20866 lwb@AvalonCorp.com
202 xomox@eden.com                     16122 lwb@eden.com
202 xomox@eden.com                     16122 lwb@Eden.com
177 lwb@avaloninc.com                  13644 lwb@eden.com
177 lwb@avaloninc.com                  13644 lwb@Eden.com
202 xomox@eden.com                     10813 lwb@matrix.eden.com
918 jaz@itvcorp.com                    10307 lwb@AvalonCorp.com

The addresses on the left are currently on the distribution list,
and those on the right are what SmartLists is attempting to find
a match for (determined by the headers of your request message).
The middle column of numbers is the quality weighting of the
match -- a value of 24476 or better is necessary for
an automated unsubscription to take effect.

If you recognize one of the addresses IN THE LEFT COLUMN as
being the one you wanted to unsubscribe, send in a new
unsubscribe request containing the subject:

         unsubscribe the_address_you_meant

If nothing looks like a match, then it is quite likely that
you have either already been unsubscribed (it may take several
days for queued messages to stop being delivered) or that you
subscribed via someone else's private mailing alias.  In the
latter case, you may be able to identify that alias by the
Received headers sent with a message from the list.

If this wasn't your intention or you are having problems getting yourself
unsubscribed, reply to this mail now (quoting it entirely (for diagnostic
purposes), and of course adding any comments you see fit).  Be sure to
include some indication of what you want the listowners to do, since they
are unlikely to be able to divine it from the message.


Now what???
