Depending on what kind of webpage you're wanting, I can probably assist
with this, and probably provide space for a mirror, if needed.

Plain Text, perhaps? Since the only formatting you'll be keeping of the

I'm not sure I have a better idea, but when I was speed-skimming
thread-subjects (I'm woefully behind on reading the list, so I
mass-delete on the basis of subject), because of extra spaces in the
message subject, what I actually saw was: "International Language
Construction" and nearly deleted the thread because I initially thought
it was about constructing a new inter-language. I don't have anything
against them, I'm just not interested in the subject, as it were (having
2023 messages in my conlang folder might have something to do with that.
"The International Language Construction
Bulletin (working title :)) )"
Unfortunately, I don't know of a good title that captures the elements
(e.g. language creation, international, etc.) without giving that false
Of course, it could be I'm the only one misguided enough to mistake
"International Language Construction" for inter-language construction.
