Uhm. Funny enough, right now there is a big discussion in gnome-webmaster list
about wml. The decision not to use wml has been made, but the current site 
thats on uses wml. A Japaniese person requested that a link to his site would
be added to the link page in the GNOME website. He had mail four (4) times 
before anyone was bothered to mess with the crap known as wml. A new website
is in the works that doesn't have these problems.
  The biggest problem with wml(and others) is that the original creator of a 
page knows it inside out, and knows wml quite well, since he had to learn it
to create the page. But when new information needs to be added by an another
person, problems arise. The problem is, that most content providers shouldn't 
need to be wml experts, and most aren't, so content is not being added. 
  I am not saying I know a perfect way to make a big website. I personally 
would  probably go with css, http://www.linux.com/ is a good example of a site 
that uses css nicely, and it even works with Netscape 4.

content. The webmasters job would be to maintain the service and  the style-
sheets. He's job should not be to morph someone elses content to the
