Charter and History
Attention working group participants:
(@@deliverables section of the charter should sets initial deliverables, and link to this section for updates. Each time a deliverable is added, you should consider writing a newsletter article to update the membership.)

In this section, explain how this group derives its authority: activity proposal, membership review, Director's decision in the form of CFP and Charter.
Then provide an edited history of the group: at least links to face-to-face meetings, if not links to teleconferences. Ideally, every decision of the group is directly linked from here.
This section should also serve as a log of documents sent to this group and recognized by the chair (requirements, drafts for review by the group, etc.)
I find it easist to maintain the history in reverse-chronological order; i.e. newest stuff at the top.
anything you and the WG participants want to have handy; related pages on the W3C site or elsewhere. some examples:
This template, like all of the W3C web site (and much of the web) follows the original Style Guide for Online Hypertext ©Tim BL 1992,93,94,95,96,97, 98.
The styleguide devotes a section to explaining why you should Give links into context.
Aside from providing an obvious navigational link to the W3C home page, the W3C logo at the top of a working group home page suggests that W3C endorses the content of this page (and in particular: invokes the W3C trademark).
