Hi, Bert.

I looked at every bullet under "What's New" and read the entire "CSS 
Specifications" section.

I did not see the link to this because it's at the bottom of a frame
which refuses to scroll (at least in Netscape 7.01) and was lower than
the height of the browser window.  Even if I had seen it, it's doubtful
that I would have realized this is where I would find drafts of new
versions of the specs.

No question about that.

Sure.

1. Avoid the use of frames which can't be navigated.
2. Add a pointer to drafts of new versions to the "What's New" section.
3. Add a pointer to drafts of new versions to "Specifications."
