The WhatWG was formed by Apple, Mozilla and Opera because they were
dissatisfied with the way W3C wanted to develop the principle markup
language for the web. The rebel initiative gathered so much support that
W3C was urged to consider embracing it. W3C restarted the HTML WG for
this purpose, see the "New HTML WG at W3C" post dd April 11th 2007 to
this list.
