Hello fellow HTML people. Who all is on this list anyway?

A few points for discussion right off:

1. Will anybody be taping Dave R.'s presentation on HTML+? If so, I would
love a copy, since I won't be able to make it to switzerland (wedding is
on the 28th, and soon-to-be-wife was a little upset that I wanted to
come back a few hours before the rehearsal dinner - sheesh, she should
get her priorities straight)

2. I would like to see the <embed> attribute but back into the HTML+ spec.
It was there a while ago (8 months or so), and I implemented it, and
have found it quite handy. I use it quite a bit for the documentation
on my emacs browser <embed src="cur-version.html" type="text/html"> in
all the 'Help On Vxx.yy' menu choices.

3. Math support - is this done in anything but the Cern unreleased browser
yet? Is it stable enough for me to start working on, or is it more of a
moving target than HTML+ in general?

4. Level specification
We came up with at least 4 levels of HTML/HTML+ at the TEI-WWW
conference in ireland last year, but never got all the elements of HTML+
put into the levels. Has anybody worked on this lately?

5. Finalization of HTML spec
Once we get a working DTD for 'accepted' practice in HTML, will it
finally be frozen? I think it should be put out as an RFC
(informational only? I'm fuzzy on the RFC ratification process), then
have everyone concentrate on implementing HTML+.
