Ah, the power of technology -- we've roundtripped it back into HTML
Now if we could drop in channels for, say, the FoRK required reading
list (to which I'd definitely add your xmlhack.com for sure, beats
getting xml-dev in my inbox :-)
From http://www.cs.caltech.edu/~adam/LOCAL/faq-fork.html :
22. Okay, how do I get bits?
By regularly reading the FoRK "required reading" list:
Above the Crowd
dist-obj Archive (summer 96 - present)
FoRK Archive (spring 96 - present)
Need to Know
New York Times
Rapidly Changing Face of Computing
Red Rock Eater Digest
Slashdot.org , the ULTIMATE geek news site
Stating the Obvious
Tasty Bits from the Technology Front / TBTF
We'd have something rather handy...

Thanks. I nearly bothered doing that but though it'd distract me from
getting round to an XSLT version...

Gah, sorry, based it on a Perl scraper for http://www.mailbase.ac.uk/
(1000s of hypermail-ish mail archives) that mostly 'just worked' when pointed
at FoRK. Fixed now.
