I've updated the WDG Web Authoring FAQ: http://www.htmlhelp.com/faq/html /

This is the first update in about 4 years, so there were a lot of changes.
Unfortunately, there are still quite a few changes that need to be made...

Anyway, I've got the infrastructure set up to make future updates more
quickly, so the next update should be well before the year 2009.

Good; perhaps you will be able to announce when it may be worth fetching
another new copy?

IIRC, in that indexing page, there is a link at the top to all.html, and
a non-link at the bottom to all.html.  Perhaps the bottom reference
might be linkified?

IIRC, that page may say "and is posted regularly to the newsgroup
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html."; all.html does say that.  ISTM
that the index could reasonably be posted regularly, to make its
statement true; but the statement in all.html is rightly false.

And all.html has "The text version is posted to the newsgroups" which I
don't recall seeing.

Should newsgroup references be added to the "Where can I learn about
..." sections ??

Sec 7.11 - or Javascript.

Sec 8.4 - ISTM that it should be possible to include GMT/UTC with SSI.

Can you get   http://www.htmlhelp.org/faq/fep/ updated?  Paragraphs 3
& 4 of "vi. Did you use the FONT element?" look like codswallop.  AIUI,
signed font size changes are in steps on a 7-rung ladder.  Since the
last update (AFAICS) was 1997-02-23, it's possible that other changes
may be in order.
