As many of you know, an IETF HTML Working Group was formally
constituted under the leadership of Tim Berners-Lee at the Toronto IETF
meeting this past week. Tim announced this list as the official organ
of that group. Its initial membership is comprised of the HTML-IG
members, but, in keeping with the charter of IETF working groups,
membership is open to all interested parties.

The following will comprise the introductory notice for the list. I am
happy to entertain suggestions for improving it, as well as a volunteer
to process and mount the hypertext version.

I believe that the configuration of our sendmail has been fixed to eliminate
the problem with headers. Please let me know if you encounter evidence to
the contrary.



IETF Working Group on HTML

Welcome to the HTML-WG list. This list is maintained for the express
and limited purpose of supporting the activities of those actively
involved in the IETF Working Group on HTML specifications. All
subscribers are welcome, but it is important that discussion on this
list be restricted to matters of immediate importance in negotiating
consensus concerning the specifications of HTML in the IETF standards
track. Please restrict postings here to this purpose.

opportunity for discussions of philosophy, proposed features, and
announcements of WWW systems and resources. Those interested in
general discussions of WWW issues may wish to join one of the general
Web discussions hosted elsewhere, including:
