A number of discussion lists focusing on web authoring software have been brought to our attention. Each of them are styled as venues for sharing tips, techniques and user-to-user support for each of the products listed, providing the latest information pertaining to product itself and companion products. Lists are available for:
- Adobe's GoLive, the web site authoring software product;
- Macromedia's Dreamweaver web site authoring software product;
- Adobe's forthcoming InDesign page layout software product.
- XML and hypertext discussion list - in a posting to the XML.dev list, Simon St.Laurent observes that "conversations about XML and hypertext have been scattered for a long time", being discussed periodically in a number of different online fora. He goes on to note that "although hypertext is far from a dominant application of XML, there still seems to be plenty of interest in the subject". It is with this in mind that an xml-hypertext list is being promoted. "The firstname.lastname@example.org list is designed to bring these many discussions together into a forum that focuses more squarely on hypertext. xml-hypertext is an unmoderated list, though only subscribers may post".

A new XHTML mailing list dedicated to discussing XHTML, the next generation of HTML has been created. XHTML recasts the familiar HTML vocabulary into a stricter XML syntax, opening up new possibilities for both HTML and XML.
While it's a minor change in some ways, the implications and new potentials are enormous and largely uncharted. Simon St.Laurent, the instigator, is hoping that this list can bring together people from both the HTML and XML communities and shed some light on what XHTML has to offer to both groups.
Webmasters, software developers, and anyone who might be interested in XHTML is welcome to join. To subscribe, send an email to the address below or visit the site.
