During the last three years, this list has had a home at Imperial College,
and more than 18,000 postings have been made, the cummulative effect
of which we feel has made a major impact on the development of 
the Internet and of  Open Standards. 

The time has come to move the list to an organisation which can offer 
extensive additional resources to improve the features available to 

We are delighted to be able to announce that OASIS have most generously
offered to host the list from January  1st, 2000. A press release announcing
this has been made available on the  OASIS site;

Further announcements at the above site, and to this list  will be made
shortly to indicate the arrangements for transfer of the list.

Here at Imperial College, we will be closing down the list re-distribution
on  Tuesday 21 December, since no administrators will be available after
that date because of the holiday shutdowns.
Please continue to post up to that date, and please watch for
further announcements.

The list archive will continue to be available for some time from for postings
made up to the 21 December 1999, with the possibility of a duplicate at OASIS.

Meanwhile, I would like to thank every one of the  1400 of subscribers
and contributors to the list for an extraordinary and quite 
possibly unique experience of watching the birth
and development of XML over the last three years. Many thanks folks,
and see you all, as they say, in the new home shortly!
