Here are some more and less effective ways to comment on
the 2.0 spec:

* "I'd like to see HTML extended to include ..."
  This is out of the scope of the 2.0 effort. We're trying
  to be largely descriptive of current practice. www-talk
  is still an OK forum for these comments... Dave Ragget
  is always listening. But I have blinders on.

* "Here's a proposal for an HTML extension ... [proposed
  spec extension included]"
  I might have time to stick this in as a proposed feature.
  No guarantees.

* "In http:...., you wrote XXX, which is wrong. What
  actually happens is YYY"
  I'll try to address these, but this format doesn't
  save me any time -- it only creates work for me to do.

* "The http:.... node isn't quite right. Here's a replacement
  [or diffs] and a few test cases to demonstrate the
  Bingo. You're nearly guaranteed to get your comments in
  if you submit them this way.

Thank you for your support.
