I think I remember HTML+ as being an initiative from Dave Raggett (but I may be misremembering).

Yeah, that’s what I saw in what I was reading. I don’t know how many people were involved… seems like it was born from a W3 meeting in July 1993, so presumably many people. And he took on the responsibility of writing the HTML+ spec.

Any chance you could share how recommendations go and become feature supported by web browsers? Seems we never get to see the whole process…

This seems ahead of it’s time: <INPUT NAME=”users” TYPE=int> 1993. Golly. Great find, Jen.

Glad that didn’t stick — could you imagine how that would have evolved into something like “HTML Double+ Un-Good Web3 Edition”?
