Dear Mr. Raggett,
Thank you for the info. you have provided here.
I am very glad that the W3C is taking an interest into
the wireless internet further to the previous HDML
spec.
I noticed that the term WML2 was used in your original
message; is this to be the official term for the new
spec. of WML (?) - I believe we are at WML 1.2 now,
although it is not widely supported.
WAP is my main area of interest (see
http://www.wapdesign.org.uk/), so the following two
points are some that have been raised time and time
again to me, I would be grateful to hear your
comments:-
1) Now that the W3C is starting to collaborate with 
WAP Forum, can we assume that there will be stricter
monitoring of WAP browser applications (that in the
past have almost completely ignored the WAP Forum
official specifications)?
2) Will there be ANY involvement at all from the
general public? By this I mean businesses who cannot
afford to joibn WAP Forum, or do not do so because
they believe that WAP is doomed to failure? (There are
some!)
Kindest Regards,
Sean B. Palmer
