    11= Welcome to Haskell' = 
    22 
    3 == MissionStatement == 
     3== Introduction == 
    44The Haskell programming language is divided into more-or-less two "branches". The Haskell 98 standard is the "stable" branch of the language, and that has been a big success. A lot of progress has been made over the last few years in the "research" branch of the Haskell language. It is constantly advancing, and we feel that it is time for a new standard which reflects those advancements.

    6 Haskell' will be a conservative refinement of Haskell 98. It will be the work of this committee to adopt a set of language extensions and modifications and to standardize a new set of libraries. 
    7  
    8 We will strive to only include tried-and-true language features, and to define them at least as rigorously as Haskell 98 was defined. This standard will reflect the realities of developing practical applications in the Haskell language. We will work closely with the rest of the Haskell community to create this standard.
