HTML seems to be acquiring an independent life of its own.

BTW, this string is a bit like a group of TWs trying to write a corporate
document style guide. It can be as boring and nitpicky as heck, but you've
got to set the definitions. How do you use HTML? SGML? What is dynamic
and what is static?

The Web is just too new. If we don't set the definitions, then there's
no basis for a discussion on Web-based Technical Communication.
