Nobody here intends to confuse anyone. I ain't got no idea, when
anybody first thought of Wireless Markup Language. I just know
that Website Meta Language was already there, when the other
term became _public_ (that is, known to me :-).

Apart from that, WML is not a name, it's just an abbreviation. I
don't think, "this" WML needs to be renamed, the footer of this
list and everything shows quite clear, what we are talking
about. And finally, I think, we already had that topic ...

For my own part I'd say, as long as misunderstanding and
confusion are so rare, let's just go on with it. Should a
real problem arise, we can think about it again.

Thanks for your care. By the way, do you use Website Meta
Language or have you just been misleaded to this list, too?
