Hi All,

Thanks very much for your responses.

Indeed, I am looking for the latest Editor's drafts [1] as well as  
some general info about the specs (such as [2] provides). It appears  
current-work.html [3] fails to meet the first requirement (but could  
if one of the two links per document block pointed to the latest  
Editor's draft instead of both pointing to .../TR/).

Anyhow, I'm surely missing something because I don't understand the  
opposition to make [2] Public.

-Regards, Art Barstow
