Send mail
	To: www-archive@w3.org
and attach the file, using regular MIME attachments.

HTML, usually. see also:

No, it just makes the message available via HTTP, just
like mail sent to www-webont-wg@w3.org is available
under
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-webont-wg/
somewhere. After you send the message, you have
to go hunt for the address of the attachment.

You can send attachments to www-webont-wg; that meets
the archive requirements. Some folks prefer that,
since when they're travelling, they get attachments
but not stuff that's pointed to with a URI.

But I prefer that large stuff is handled via www-archive.

It's just sorta surprising... nobody asked questions
about how to use www-webont-wg; they just did it.
