Is the new version available somewhere? Until it is, the current
version ought to be on file in the internet drafts, no? I got a
request just the other day asking how to cite to the HTML 2.0
spec in a scholarly document.

Maybe I'm confused, but I thought it was common practice to submit
early drafts of specs as internet drafts. A lot of drafts go through
-01, -02, ... -05 drafts before becoming RFC's.

I just find it awkward that we can't refer to the current HTML
spec even as an internet draft.
