Many will remember the founding of the W3C.

At the time, there was some disquiet that Web standards setting might
be driven by the demands of big business, to the detriment of the
users of those standards.

The intervening years have shown that these fears were largely without
substance.

Please keep it that way.

Cheers,

Martin
