1) HTML 4.0 use & backward compatibility
2) - CSS use & backward compatibility
3) - W3C DOM use
4) - RDF use
5)* - XML use
6) - Nav5 Skins use
7) - Nav5 XUL use

Thanks to arielb for the news.

I think a lot of us non-C++ non-wizards have been waiting for these (as well as for the poll to change ;-)... I'll spread the good word over at Builder Buzz & /.

Kovu -- that's not a dead group, it's a hierarchy (`*' is a regular expression meaning `anything'). So in the future there may end up being,,, etc.

(Moz actually should have put a `.' before the `*', but never mind.)

Actually, what has been done is, there was an existing group, and it will be moved to . They have to get the messages moved over before they can kill the old one and create the new one I think.
