Re: A summary of the top page ?
:> It sounds good, but wouldn't it be better to formalize

:> 1. put the description of the WWW VL document either
:> at some standard location in the document or a link to it
:> from a standard spot in the document, perhaps with a

I suggest we put in our documents, just after the introduction,
<!-- desc -->
Here I describe what this field stands for
<!-- end_desc -->
:> 2. standardize the format for listing of sub-fields (I
:> have already streamlined their listing on the WWW VL
:> Engineering page);
Just after this description, I suggest we introduce the new field
Then, we start the information by
<!-- new -->
and end it with <!-- end_new -->
Then, we have the field
"Virtual Library Specialized fields"
Here, we reference all the specialized fields that are conformant
with the virtual library standards, as defined in
We start the list by
<!-- fields -->
and end it with <!-- end_fields -->
then, the field
"Other specialized connections"
Here, we reference all other specialized fields
Then, we start our document.
:> 3. standardize the link from a WWW VL page to the page of
:> maintainers of the sub-fields of that page, and standardize

:> address, e.g.
All right, let us refer to the page of maintainers of the sub-fields
in the section "Virtual Library Specialized fields":
at the end of it, we could have an anchor like
"(to <A HREF="...">mail the maintainers</A>)"
Email addresses of the sub-maintainers should be enclosed with
<!-- email --> and <!-- end_email --> in their personnal page
:> Always trying to be as lazy as possible! ;-)
True, so let's just give an example: Have a look at
If you all agree, I'll modify .../Administration.html accordingly
