Nothing is perfect, and everything is improvable, but sometimes we 
are loosing in very sterile discussion. I'm the first one to find 
some practices from the W3C a little bit confusing. I'm not a SGML 
specialist and a DTD expert, but in 10 years using internet, I've 
gained experiences about the internet and web development.

The way the recommendation are issued is sometimes frustrating (as 
introducing frame in HTML 3.2, but that's an old war). The ideas 
sustaining the web are very important and is very to try to develop 
them in a harmonious with many people as possible. And, IMHO, it's 
what the W3C does !

We can make assumptions about the goals of Dan Connolly or the "dark" 
way, the W3C is managing the forum, but it's not so bad.

One think is really important, and this is the real question of the 
web future and of its daily use. The work of WAI (Web Accessibility 
Initiative) and the work of Judy Brewer are much more important, the 
web is for all of us.

How many people on this list that complain about the process of 
discussing recommendation produce accessible content, or at least, 
content that respects the DTD. More important how many people and 
software company develop good compliant software. That's the real 

Fight or Seduce people to give a chance to the web to survive. It's a 
very hard job, save your words for very usefull fight.

PS : I apologize for my faulty english, and I hope I was understandable.

Près de vous, madame, oubliant les cieux,
L'astronome étonné se trouble;
C'est dans l'éclat caressant de vos yeux,
Qu'il avait cru trouver l'étoile double.
