Subject Re: XHTML2 I have read it and I like it... GO READ IT!
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2002 19:53:57 GMT
An interesting article on XHTML2, for those who don't want to read the 
spec :-P

Since there has been quite a good reception on switching the documentDTD 
  over to a profile of XHTML2wd, I think that maybe the best thing could 
be to make a branch, change there the DTD, check that it all works, and 
ask a vote for a branch switch.

What do you think?
