Hi Glen,

You now have a mercurial repository that is publicly readable and group writeable:

That is linked from the upper left corner of your home page (under version control).

Regarding HTML formatting, I don't have any experience. Another group is using mercurial as well [1]; you may want to contact Aryeh Gregor (his contact info is in [1]) for his experience.

I invite you to ask editors of W3C specs on the public mailing list

Hope that helps!
