Hi All,
Taking into consideration Bjoern's, Thomas', and Jon's feedback, I've
re-written the Widget Resources section of the [1].

Bjoern, I've trimmed much of the text. Please let me know if that is
any better?

Thomas, I made sure the ABNF now directly follows to the definition of
a zip relative path. I've also tried to address the ASCII and UTF-8
issues by being quite restrictive. From my own testing, both Zip and
Widget implementations seem pretty messed up when it comes to
processing file names outside ASCII... so what I've spec'd was the
best solution I could come up with: if it says it's ASCII, but it's
not, then die; otherwise, feel free to treat as UTF-8. However, Art is
setting up a discussion with the internationalization folks about this
issue to see if they can come up with a better solution.

Jon, all instances of the word "preferred" have been replaced to
"recommended" throughout the document. The text about path lengths has
now become an informative note.

I'd really appreciate if you could take the time to read the updated
text and let me know if it is ok (please ignore any markup/style
errors, I'll fix those soon).

Kind regards,
