This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to terminate development of the 
separate "HTML: The Markup Language" and "HTML5: Edition  for Web 
Authors" document, and to publish the results as a W3C Note.

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive
responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Thursday,
May 23rd, this resolution will carry.
