Hello,

In order to help test "RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing" [1],
which was published as a Candidate Recommendation on 20 June,
pubrules is hereby updated to allow technical reports (except
for Recommendations) to use the XHTML+RDFa DTD. The validator
and the pubrules checker both support this DTD.

This change affected two pubrules provisions, which now read:

1. All normative representations MUST either:

    * validate as either HTML 4.x or as some version of XHTML that is a
      W3C Recommendation, or
    * validate as XHTML+RDFa; see RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing
      (not yet a W3C Recommendation; Team Contacts please see the
      Communications Team to propose additional exceptions).

2. At least one normative representation MUST identify itself as HTML
    4.x, or XHTML 1.0, or XHTML+RDFa (for backwards compatibility).

Thank you,

  _ Ian
