For those who are interested, I grabbed this from the main page:

!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"

So the we're working with making thing standard HTML 4.01 strict (there other,
sometimes more strict, HTML standards that websites can fall under from w3)

When you say "submit them here" do you mean email you the completed .html page to you directly?

Sorry, I thought you recongnised my name. I'm the primary admin for the
#Ubuntu-Women channel on freenode, I've have already made a commitment and will
continue to doso. I just said "I have a lot of time this weekend" in the hopes
that we could get the ball rolling on this quickly.

So you do want to keep this static.

If you go to the wiki there are tabs that say the following:

Ubuntu Women: http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/

Which links to the Front Page of the wiki.

Wiki: http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/Wiki/

Which was empty but I added some of the Ideas content to (most of the ideas
content wasn't really valid anymore because it discussed the future creation of
the ubuntu-women.org website).


Which does not exist. I thought perhaps we wanted to either remove this tab or
link it to the Ubuntu Women forums over on ubuntuforums.org.

"Mailing list" 

Which links to our mailing list.

Ok, we are the same group.

I see the link to the general forums, but there is no link specifically to the
UbuntuWomen Forums.

Sorry I was not more clear, we'd certainly leave a link to the new content.
