Hi folks,


A mini-landmark has been attained: I've finished the first phase of
editorial revision: completing the translation from MS Word to HTML
(begun by Doug in October).  Next I'll be sweeping through the document
with regards to both incorporating changes suggested by the various
reviewers and modernizing the text a little bit (e.g. to reflect the
presence of SVG support in new browsers like Chrome and Safari). A bit
of that modernization has already begun, as I happened to see things in
sweeping through the HTML.  


I believe the Appendix on HTML should just quietly disappear. HTML is in
the midst of rapid change and I am not the right person to write about
it. Its inclusion made sense, it seemed, when the document was intended
for print. In the meantime I've included a link to Dave Raggett's
Introduction to the subjection. Unless anyone sees a reason to revise it
or keep it, then I'll remove it once I've found and removed any
references to it from the main text.


The current version (which gets it back to where it was as a print
document a couple of years ago) can be seen at


Doug, I suspect that I should be able to complete the incorporation of
reviewers comments within a week or two, so it probably does not make
sense to move the existing document to W3C just yet until that step is


After that is done, we can anticipate a series of comments from other
folks here, but that process will go on forever, so that might be the
time to make the document go "live"??
