On the wilbur page[1], we said we expected to have a draft of an
actual spec by July 1. Several weeks ago, we evaluated the resources
to do this draft internally, and we changed our expectations to
something like August 1. We neglected to change the public HTML 3.2
page.

I see that several people noticed that the July 1 date has come and
gone. I have just changed it to read "early august."

By way of explanation: we appreciate the need for an HTML 3.2 spec
(and standard), but there are time pressures on the other HTML
features in development: scripting, forms, math etc.  and we chose to
work on the HTML 3.2 draft at a somewhat lower priority.

We are somewhat understaffed when it comes to technical writing.  If
you've written HTML books and such AND you have a feel for standards
work and familiarity with the history of HTML developments, you might
drop us a resume. See [2].
