Like Eric, I will be at the WWW conference in Darmstadt and therefore
will not be able to attend the April IETF meeting. I suspect that
this concatenation of WWW and markup-related conferences in the spring
(there's a DSSSL WG meeting in late April and SGML Europe is in May)
is hard on a lot of us folks who have families.

Isn't it time to start thinking of HTML as WWW-related rather than
IETF-related? Which would you rather miss, an IETF conference or a
WWW conference?
