Description steve faulkner 2012-09-18 08:30:38 UTC
the following text and links it contains is innacurate and reflects the old HTML5 editing situation:

"The latest stable version of the editor's draft of this specification is always available on the W3C CVS server and in the WHATWG Subversion repository. The latest editor's working copy (which may contain unfinished text in the process of being prepared) contains the latest draft text of this specification (amongst others). For more details, please see the WHATWG FAQ."

suggest modification to reflect reality.

Additionally, I've made some further updates to more accurately reflect the current sources, locations, and update cadences of HTML5 work:
