The >Green Peace of the Web? Well, IMHO, the W3C has done its job in getting some potentially useful standards published. The W3C has not been effective as an advocacy or bully-pulpit organization, and it's hard to see that happening, in part because of some of the reasons raised by Eliot. It seems quite possible that the people who organized the WSP, mostly big-time site builders who spend other people's money to build highly visible Web presences, are well-positioned to get some attention and do some useful advocacy. Which is why it interests me. One interesting discussion is, which standards to focus on... my personal bet would be XML/CSS/DOM, because the implementations are just happening. Is it worthwhile, at this point in history, trying to retroactively save HTML? Real question. -Tim xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
