Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,

It is my pleasure to announce that HTML 5.1 2nd Edition is now a W3C 
Edited Recommendation:
     https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/REC-html51-20171003/

This specification defines the 2nd edition of the 5th major version, 
first minor revision of the core language of the World Wide Web: the 
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). In this version, a significant error 
with HTML 5.1 has been rectified, as noted in the Errata corrected 
section. Meanwhile, new features continue to be introduced to help Web 
application authors, new elements continue to be introduced based on 
research into prevailing authoring practices, and special attention 
continues to be given to defining clear conformance criteria for user 
agents in an effort to improve interoperability in the development of 
HTML 5.2.

Most of Members who responded to the Call for Review [1] of the Proposed 
Recommendation supported the publication of this specification as a W3C 
Recommendation, or abstained.

There were two objections, which suggested two editorial changes for the 
previous Recommendation of HTML 5.1. This Edited Recommendation has 
fixed these problems:
 
https://github.com/w3c/html/commit/2c7dc40b2bad2880de862cb6a4ceffe50144150e

This publication aims to rectify a substantive bug in the previous 
Recommendation of HTML 5.1:
   https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/REC-html51-20171003/changes.html#errata

Please join us in congratulating the W3C Web Platform Working Group [2] 
on this achievement.

This announcement follows section 6.7.2 of the W3C Process Document:
   https://www.w3.org/2017/Process-20170301/#revised-rec


Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Philippe Le Hégaret, Project Management Lead, and
Coralie Mercier, Head of W3C Marketing & Communications
