People see HTML as more than just the markup, so this needs to include
other things essential to interoperability of web pages using HTML, e.g.
scripting APIs (including events), style sheets, and media formats.

Non-core, but valuable to our mission is promoting effective use of
HTML, e.g. best practices for accessibility, use of scripting and style
sheets, and online services such as validators.
