People outside the WG can read about the differences here:


and also read about the HTML WG's starting point (or roughly our  
starting point) here:


We're having a hard time communicating on these issues within the WG.  
I think once we figure out how to do that, we'll have an easier time  
communicating succinctly and effectively to a wider public audience.  
Once we get a clearer shared understanding of our design principles,  
I think all of this will go much more smoothly. This would include a  
clearer understanding about what criteria were applied in the design  
choices made so far.

Take care,
