Final CSS Logo Selection

To the participants of www-style,

On behalf of The World Wide Web Consortium, I would like to take this
opportunity to thank all of you who shared your designs, ideas,
suggestions and feedback during the selection process of the new
Cascading Style Sheets logo. I know it's been quite a hot topic on the
mailing list...

During the process of moving CSS1 to a W3C Recommendation this past
December, Hakon asked if I, as "Keeper of the Public Image", would chose
the final logo for CSS. I'd been tracking the developments at and the mailing list for a
while and knew that although this would be a very difficult decision to
make, it would be a critical one which would establish the "credibility"
of CSS. After weeks of debate and indecision, I am pleased to announce
that my choice is option "b" from David Siegel/Studio Verso's design set
[Suite 11]. Although the design is still in comp form, we will be moving
quickly to finalize the logo for its use in the very near future.

Hakon, Bert, Chris and the many advocates of CSS -- nothing would have
been possible without your ongoing dedication, commitment and support
for which we are grateful.

With best wishes for the New Year,

Sally Khudairi
