We had only two evenings available, and chose what we thought would
draw the most interest and controversy.  Schemas and Query are very
much on people's radar right now, judging from the level of discussion
on XML-Dev and other lists.  Other finalists included at least one
non-W3C topic, the SML stuff.

The town council sets the agenda, then the citizens come out to air
their views.  You can even mention HyTime when you have your turn at
the microphone, if you want.

All the best,


p.s. I left the W3C's XML Activity last fall, for personal reasons.

p.p.s. Should we hold a town hall on town halls?
