This is a call for participation.
You are all intimately familliar with the lack of standards in email clients, and the resulting constraints and library of hacks. This community has an opportunity to take domain expertise back to the vendors in the form of specifications.
Within the last few days, the mailing list for the W3C HTML for email community group has been blowing up with a highly energized group of willing participants in crafting definitive email standards.
Please join this movement. Volunteer. Meet. Discuss. Draft. Publish.
(posting this here - I originally heard about this on the Litmus forums Email standards. Finally. Let’s Do This. > Litmus )
