Subject: HTML 4.0 draft available
Message-ID: <>

The first public draft of the HTML 4.0 specification is now
available. This has been rewritten from the Cougar drafts.
The goal is to work towards a proposed recommendation. The spec
is the result of 3 years work in the W3C HTML working group and
discussions on www-html. I would very much like to see discussion
on this list and will do my best to respond quickly, although
this may not always be that easy when traveling. 

The draft is at:      http:/
The press release:

Feedback is welcome on the structure of the draft as well as
the technical content. I would like to make the specification
as easy to understand as possible for a wide range of people.

Your suggestions are welcome.
