I have replied to this, and also changed the subject line to reflect the
content of *this* message :-)
Note that I have:
- removed the "(was Alternatives... suffix)"
- inserted a (was: ...) to show whence this came
- added a descriptive subject
- replied *only* to the list, not to the author
Anyone else who wishes to reply to a posting with a subject line containing
one-or-more instances of "Alternatives to the W3C" should consider whether
their reply now fits the "Web browsers and editors" theme better.
The reason I have revitalised this is that Henry and I want to try to
analyse the list content and structure so that we can normalise and
hyperlink the content of XML-DEV. Removing spurious material and
encouraging good subject lines will be helpful in this process.
[BTW some will have noticed that the hypermailer is capable of time travel
(the MCMLXX bug). This is not present in the original mail, I think.]
