	Option 6) Create an informal mailing list on one of the free
hosting services.  

	Anyway, I'd be willing to act as champion for an XML or
SGML-SIG (preferably the former, since the target is smaller), write
the mission statement, maintain a status Web page similar to the
String-SIG's, etc.  The wrap-up date could be set to June '98
(changeable later), and the deliverables would be those listed in an
earlier e-mail of mine.

	Before doing that, though, I'd like to hear from Michael
McLay, who's responsible for the Doc-SIG, whether he considers XML to
be on-topic there.  If the Doc-SIG is OK, then we wouldn't need a
separate SIG.  If Michael doesn't like the idea, I'll write up a
mission statement for the XML-SIG and post it.  Michael?
