Before we get too many :


documents floating around, it would be good to have a simple
registry in place that would not require a full standards
body to debate the details of each new set of enhancements
that come along. There is a fair amount of agreement
today for what is in HTML 1.0 and 2.0 . There is some
general idea of what will be available in HTML 3.0 and
to a lesser extent what could appear in HTML 2.1.

Perhaps the Netscape extensions could be labeled as "bag a"
of HTML extensions. aka HTML 2.0.a or 2.0 + a . Are there other
extension naming conventions that could fill the gap ? A mechanism
that allows both a formal standardization process and a rapid
prototyping environment for new browser developers is important
to maintain the growth of web capabilities.
