HWG Lists Charters and Instructions hwg-w3c


Welcome to the HWG-W3C mailing list

This list is used by HTML Writers Guild Plus and Associate level members for discussion related to the W3C -- the latest standards, announcement and news, and W3C happenings of interest to Guild members. If you are not a Plus or Associate level member, you may visit the Membership Information Page to find out how to become one.

Discussions of this type can sometimes be subjective in nature and can generate a great deal of strong emotion, as different viewpoints may be presented and debated. Please keep your messages on-topic, civil, and provide facts and references to back up any opinions stated within.

Information about the World Wide Web Consortium can be found at their website, at http://www.w3.org/; all participants on this list should familiarize themselves with the wealth of information found on that site.

The Guild offers a number of other lists that cover other, specific topics. For more information please see the Mail List home page.

Subscribers of the hwg-w3c mailing list are expected to follow basic rules of netiquette in a civilized manner; please read over the guidelines.
