Many Web browsers support email. Many email messages carry HTML documents. HTML and email are often used with each other, but there are no specific rules for this usage.. The HTML threading submission recognizes this and proposes to establish conventions for using HTML in email.
The W3C staff have reviewed the submission and noticed relationship to some W3C activities:
Note that this submission makes some extensions to HTML 4.0. These extensions could be proposed at the "Future of HTML" workshop that W3C organizes on 4-5 May 1998.
The submission also associates metadata information in XML with HTML messages. This could be a contribution to the coordination meeting on XML in HTML [W3C Members Only] to be held on 11-12 February 1998.
Next Steps: The relevant working groups will be invited to consider whether the submission is partially or wholly within their scope.
The W3C membership is invited to discuss the disposition of the submission in the w3c-ac-forum mailing list or to advise the director in confidence via W3C staff contact.
