I think that somebody else answered that question of yours earlier tonight.
I noticed that the reply had been bound to the wrong message -- one of mine
if I recall correctly.
Jenny, there is a bit of a subculture here in the Web-related newsgroups.
AWW is the 'hipper' way of referring to alt.www.webmaster and CIWAH refers
to comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html. That group has very good
'signal-to-noise', but it depends on whether you look for a 'watercooler
newsgroup' or a newsgroup that focuses on effective answers. I still like
this newsgroup. comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html can become very boring
and it has little of no 'communal feel'.
