    We would like to send out an invitation to participate in the discussion
    for the Human Markup Language. This is an open non-proprietary endeavor,
    open to the contributions of all parties interested in helping define human
    XML standards. These standards define various aspects of *human*
    communication process through markup, including 'gestures', 'intentions',
    'emotions', and 'attitudes'. The ultimate aim is to reduce human

    An OASIS Discussion List and Technical Committee (www.oasis-open.org) is on
    target to begin in the near future. All OASIS members interested in
    formally discuss participating in this discussion, contact me directly.

    We have created a Yahoo Group which precedes, and will work in conjunction
    with, the OASIS Committee. All parties interested in contributing to the
    process may want to join the group. The link is:

    Our initial support proposal is located at our website:
    http://www.humanmarkup.org/proposal/oasisprop.htm. If there are any
    concerns as to what is done, and what needs to be done, contact me directly.

    My role is to ensure proper coordination of contributions, at this initial
    stage. We will be working with different organizations which span the
    field of human communications and XML. There would be much value in
    contributions of ideas and directions from experts (or self-proclaimed
    experts ;)) in various areas of XML and human expression/communication, in
    the establishment of human standards.

    Please contact me directly for more information. Your insight may be of
    great benefit to many.
