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.

(the MCMLXX bug). This is not present in the original mail, I think.]
