TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Check out the HTML Writers Guild <http://www.hwg.org>. They've got a lot of
resources there as well as several mailing lists. The lists that I read are
pretty low volume, but all the questions that arise do receive responses.
The canonical reference site is the World Wide Web Consortium
<http://www.w3.org/>. They are the keepers of the "official" specs on most
of the markup languages. There are several mailing lists on their site too,
but none of the descriptions sound very newbie friendly.

which groups, listservs, and conferences do you
