Dear all,

I have been silently lurking on this list for some time, and I'm quite
excited to see a discussion rising up, so let me use the opportunity to
state ongoing interest in this working group's spec.

I'm involved with two projects that are highly interested in a stable and
community-standardized Scholarly HTML dialect, one is a LaTeX-to-HTML
converter with a scholarly focus (LaTeXML, which has 60% error-free
coverage of the arXiv.org corpus), and the other is a research
writing-and-publishing web platform (Authorea). Both teams in question are
willing and eager to support/switch towards a Scholarly HTML spec, so I
will be following the ongoing discussions with high interest. Hopefully we
can contribute something back as well.

Greetings and thanks,
