"Correct publishing methods?"

I'd appreciate it if the W3C specs were written in friendlier language, but
have no idea what you mean here.  TBD came right out of the comments in the
spec, and I figured it means 'to be determined'.  If you'd like me to write
out Document Type Definition every time I would normally use DTD, I can,
but I don't think that the extra byte overhead is especially useful on this
particular list.

This is actually extremely geeky stuff.
