	Hi Dan - it’s really up to the W3C to download the 1993/1994 www-talk archives from:

	http://1997.webhistory.org/www.lists/archives/ <http://1997.webhistory.org/www.lists/archives/>

	and integrate them into:

	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-talk/ <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-talk/>

	They’re completely welcome to - I am a bit surprised that those years are missing there after all this time. Now that I think about it, a lot of legal documents I’ve seen that reference 1993/1994 www-talk content use non-W3C URLs. It would be really nice to have everything in one place to prevent historical link rot and make it easier for researchers (and patent lawsuit defendants).

	— Kevin
