This list seems to have strayed from its intended purpose lately.

As you can see from http://www.w3.org/Mail/Lists , this list has
quite a specific purpose:

>     www-html (Archive)
>         This is the public mailing list for technical discussion
>         among those interested in enhancing the Hypertext Markup
>         Language (HTML) or building systems that support HTML.
>         It is explicitly intended for the collaborative design
>         of new systems, software, protocols, and documentation
>         which may be useful to the HTML developer community.

This is not meant to be a list for asking questions on how to do things;
if you have a question starting with "How do I...", it probably belongs

There are a number of good forums to help you with "How do I..." type
questions; some of them are:

    Usenet newsgroups comp.infosystems.www.*:

    HTML Writers Guild discussion lists

Please use these forums for your questions instead of www-html.
