We welcome the new members to the list :-). We adopt an XML-like discipline
in posting and try to follow simple guidelines:
	- reply only to the list (xml-dev) and not to the poster. Easy to avoid -
just delete the poster's name from the To: or CC: fields
	- only include quoted material if it helps the reader. The list is
archived as HTML and this is a very convenient way to browse postings. Many
people (including me) have to pay for mail traffic and so we try to keep
the volume to a minimum. It's also good XML-discipline - if you use the
same text in more than one place, your should think about entities of XLL
rather than cut-and-paste.

	Anyone is welcome on XML-DEV but in general it isn't the right place for
(appropriate place in parentheses):
	- "what is this XML thing anyway?" (www.ucc.ie/xml and
www.sil.org/sgml/xml.html)
	- "I don't like feature X in XML - let's change it". (specially appointed
groups of the W3C)
	- stylesheets (xsl-list@m...)
	- general discussion of xml issues (xml-l@L...)

	P.
