OK. We made the deadline, and the ASCII version of the document got sent
out yesterday. Within a day or two, it will become an Internet Draft, be
stored in the IETF's directories, and be made available at the IETF meeting
next week.

Time was tight, and IETF's deadline was pretty firm, so not all changes
made it in. Most regrettably, the DTD changes for ICADD did not make it in
yet. From this group's point of view, the document is still being refined,
but something had to be submitted to the IETF yesterday, so we sent the
best thing we could. My apologies.

The HTML WG is scheduled to meet twice at this IETF meeting, Thursday
morning, and Thursday afternoon, the 8th of December. I assume that I am
called upon to facilitate the morning meeting, but I will be unable to make
it to the afternoon session. The afternoon gathering goes from 1:30 to
3:30. Perhaps co-chair Tim Berners-Lee could facilitate that session?
Perhaps Dave Raggett would be interested in coordinating a discussion of
HTML 3.0 directions? I've spoken to neither of these gentlemen, so I am
just throwing out suggestions. Regardless of who it is, we will need a
volunteer to chair the afternoon session.

The morning session goes from 9:30 to noon. I think we can make the best
use of our time there by planning it carefully. If you have suggestions
for how this session can be most effective, please mail them. I will be
composing an agenda.

I guess another good question to ask is, "Who is planning on being at the
