If it ain't broke...
So I joined the HTML Working Group. It's basically open to anyone, and the main reason I joined was because I'd been keeping up with the mailing list via the archives, and wanted to subscribe so I could read it in Thunderbird. Apparently to receive list messages you need to join the group and agree to the legal stuff, but sending to the list is unrestricted. Whatever.
I doubt I'll be contributing much, so it's a good job there's no minimum participation requirement in the charter. I wouldn't be surprised if I end up posting some poorly thought out arguments on the mailing list, not that's there's a shortage of those at the moment.
On Monday, it was a bank holiday and I had too much time on my hands with nothing to do. I read the definitions of strong, em, b, and i in the WHATWG spec, and found I understood something in a specification, which is always handy. As a result of those two things, I checked every instance of bold and italic formatting in my blog archive and made their markup consistent. Yeah, I'm that obsessive.
Anyway, I'm not sure why I'm posting this. Or what the post title actually means. I might end up posting more HTML-related stuff here, I might not ever mention it again. Last day of school is Friday, so I'll have more free time for stuff like that, but I should probably use it to revise for my exams rather than blogging/lurking.
Also, I smell pizza.
