Hello world,

Apropos of the recent discussions of all things vis-a-vis HTML and XML
here and on other lists, tweets, and blogs, I'd like to introduce the
W3C HTML/XML Task Force. As some of you are aware, this task force was
created by the W3C Technical Architecture Group[1] as a way to focus
attention on the its issue HTML-XML-Divergence-67[2]. It was announced
by Tim Berners-Lee during his presentation[3] at the Technical
Plenary[4] this past October.

The task force currently consists of

   Robin Berjon
   Michael Champion
   James Clark
   John Cowan
   Michael Kay
   Yves Lafon (staff contact)
   Noah Mendelsohn
   Henri Sivonen
   Norman Walsh (chair)

With a couple of invitations still outstanding.

There is a public mailing list for the task force,
public-html-xml@w3.org, with public archives[5]. All of the task
force business will be conducted in public, there are no member-only
mailing lists or archives. You are free to join the list and
participate in the discussions there. I will also try to keep an eye
on the discussions that occur here.

My introductory message to the task force mailing list[6] and the
draft minutes of our first meeting[7] are now posted.

Thanks, in advance, to everyone for the time and energy that will be
devoted to these questions. Hopefully this is the beginning of a
process that will lead us to a place of mutual understanding and
consensus about how to build (at least parts of) the web of the
future.
