He was only recently MS too. Weren't his SGML days at Grif?

The First Draft (Nov 96) was the stellar work of Tim and Michael Sperberg-
McQueen (both "invited experts" rather than company reps). Some time in
97, Tim disclosed that he had recently agreed to be on a consulting
retainer to Netscape. That got his name *off* the spec - well, you figure
out why that happened. And what deal got his name back on again ;-)
