Hello Emmanuel (and anybody else thinking about translating),

In principle, everybody can translate HTML 4.0, or any other W3C
specifications, given that s/he follows the rules. These rules
are given in the W3C Intellectual Property FAQ [1], in particular
Section 5.6: Can I translate one of your specifications into another
language?

If you have any further questions, I recommend that you subscribe
to w3c-translators@w3.org (mailto:w3c-translators-request@w3.org)
and follow the discussions or post your questions there.

Regards,   Martin.
