for good,


So what does that mean for the future development of linking technologies at W3C?

I know that you and Tim Bray say there is little or no sign of any strategy at W3C but the last few weeks have seen some pretty chaotic events relating to linking.

Is HLink now the future? It would be ironic if that proves to be the case, after TAG's pronouncement of a few short weeks ago. Is anyone to believe that XLink 1.0 is the definitive linking technology, incapable of improvement?

Maybe someone will stumble across the plot and hand it in to a Lost Property Office.
