Dear Emmanuelle,

Are you referring to the files attached to your message of 20 October 2006
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-auth-trans-ca/2006Oct/0004.html>
-- listing a table of errors, proposed changes, and justifications; plus 
the marked-up HTML file showing those errors -- or to a later message or 
messages on the Catalan translators' list?

My impression was that the problems noted in ResumSIDAR.doc had already 
been addressed, no? Please advise.

Best regards,

- Judy
