Dear www-html readers,
			Like to say thanks to anyone who perused my RFC submission on HTML REFRESH which Dave Raggett so kindly noted on this news group. For those of you who missed it, the address its at http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-rfced-exp-nelson-00.txt.

I have been sitting on this idea for about 2 years for want of finding the correct avenue of release for it. I think that it can potentially revolutionize the way people do business and e-commerce with HTML, without having to resort to objects which are usually blocked by a firewalls (i.e. Java, Active-X etc) and without the expense of deploying traditional client server applications over the internet. 

I actually throttled back the submission from an original white paper I placed on the net around the end of 1996. This white paper covered areas such as adding data typing to HTML form fields (i.e. <INPUT NAME="AGE" type="INTEGER" MIN=0 MAX=120 SIZE=3> ). I did not know if there was any current work being done of this by w3c or not, so I thought It judicious to leave it out. Is there a place where I can see a detailed version of what the HTML Working group is working on (i.e. in some more technical depth than found at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Activity.html )? 

I suppose the HTML Working group (other than this majordomo) is only open to w3c members?

I wonder if you could possibly give me some pointers as to how I should progress the submission in both w3c and IETF contexts, as this is the first time I have put up a submission and have no idea what happens next! Please feel free to contact me anytime with any comments (other than obscene ones :) ) about my submission, 

Thanking you all for taking the time to look at it,
