Dan and Brad,

Dan, are you asking Brad and I to manage a group of writers/developers
engaged in building a tutorial for some/all aspects of HTML 5 practical usage?

Do you have a sub-charter to propose or are you leaving it up to us
to sort out operating principles and develop a web of tutorial information?

This is a huge undertaking. Bigger than the actual specification by far.
And more difficult to manage because of the dependencies.

Brad, I don't think that I know you, do I? Neither of us comes up on Wikipedia,
so I guess we are still officially below the radar. We should probably talk 
seriously thinking about taking this on. My toll-free number is 1-866-727-4221
