Since a password is required to access the css-f archive, I'm pasting in

over the life of this list there have been periods of quite a few
posts, and then long periods in between.
Maxine and I at westciv have long hoped we could put a lot into
maintaining the energy of the list, but with all the other things we do
Style Master http://www.westciv.com/style_master/
Layout Master http://www.westciv.com/layout_master/index.html

it has been very difficult. Still we think it is important to have a
forum for those relatively new to CSS and standards based web
development to discuss issues. It's why we started CSS-f even when
other forums exist. Sometimes they can be a little intimidating.
Over the last year or so, a great list-come-group, the web standards
group, has found a great niche. It's a little broader than css-f,
focussed on all aspects of standards based development. A lot of people
are new to CSS and the like, and great answers to practical questions
can be found there. But there is also a sense of shared community. An
some amazingly knowledegable members incredibly generous with their
time. It's really the best forum I've seen for this kind of stuff.
WSG is geographically based in Australia, and we have meetings in
Sydney and now Melbourne, but over half the member are outside
Australia, and the WSG is always keen to encourage new meetings all
over the World.
So what's all this about?
Maxine and I have decided for css-f to join forces with the WSG.
I know some of you are members already.
If not, I'd really like to encourage you to join up.
They have a great attitude to all things Web. I've got to know the
founders Russ Weakly (of list tutorial, select tutorial etc. fame) and
Peter Ferminger (he's the background, back office guy who keeps it all
running) well, and I have a lot of confidence in them and the WSG to do
great things. Westciv is even planning a special event later in the
year with them. No news yet, but...
We'll keep this list going for a little while, but again, please get on
sign up, and help build a great organisation, and discuss CSS, and
other web technologies with great helpful people.
Thanks for all your support, and see you at the wsg,
for Maxine Sherrin and John Allsopp
