Hello Al, 
 
Thanks again for your comments on the DISelect Last call.
 
In your response to the disposition of comments for Gilman-4 [1], you did not accept the disposition of the comment. You pointed out, quite correctly, that we had failed to correct the inappropriate terminology describing the class attribute in some examples in the DISelect specificiation.
 
The DIWG agrees with your description of the remaining issue, and your resolution. The terminology has been changed. The passage in question now reads:
 
"This example illustrates the use of a variable within an attribute of the host language. Two variables are defined in the example. Variable isColor is set by a call to the function dcn:cssmq-color. <http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-cselection-xaf/#cssmq-width>  This function returns a value of zero if the device does not support color. The value of isColor is used to control the value of variable presClass. The value of variable presClass is used, in an AVT, to specify the value of the class attributes on various elements in the host markup. The DISelect processor replaces the expressions in each AVT with the appropriate value, and this is subsequently used by the host language element. The different values of the class attribute select different CSS styles appropriate for monochrome and color devices.
 
<text of the example goes here unchanged>
 
In this example, the two different values of the class attribute reference entries in the associated CSS style sheet that contain definitions appropriate for use on devices with color and monochrome displays respectively. The example is intended primarily to illustrate the syntax of the use of AVTs and is not necessarily realistic. Note the quoting required around the string literal values colorDisplay and monochromeDisplay."
 
 
I hope you feel that the new text is appropriate. Perhaps you would be able to confirm that by posting to the list?
 
 
Very best wishes
Rhys Lewis
