Subject: RE: [chairs] New OASIS TC Descriptions

Not true. Your text will simply be moved a few inches down on the TC
homepage (if you spend the two minutes involved to move it).

Resistance is futile.  All your text will be assimilated.

I sense I'm fumbling around in the dark here trying to find where the light
switch is....

Could we have a test URL  so we can see before-hand what this new site
frontend and TC L-n-F will be?

I've just reviewed several front-doors for TC's I'm involved with - and the
front end blurb contains such useful things as - Executive Brochure link;
Tutorial / Overview PPT; and Current Public draft of specification.

It would also be useful to have access to search engine keywords as embedded

If this is all going to disappear - we need to understand where else that
might be - and how we can populate it...

Thanks, DW
