Re: An HTML5 logo

Hi Philippe,

Logos look nice! however, I'm baffled as to why HTML5 logo site mix in
things like WebGL and CSS 3, which are clearly not part of the HTML
Standard (as it is now known;))? Who made the choice of what
technologes were to be included or excluded from the set of
technologies that make up the logo sets? I ask because it's poignant
and a little demoralizing to us who have been working for many years
to see W3C Widgets excluded from the list. I'm sure I'm not the only
one feeling a bit confused by the W3C's lack of communication about
this project or why the W3C chose to exclude widgets and other
technologies? Did I miss the memo?

Kind regards,
