Dear Media Subteam Colleagues:

Our teleconference today, 15 December, was devoted almost entirely to
cleaning up our language usage in our Formats Comparison document. We
felt the need to avoid any emotional or prejudicial language in this
document. We believe we've achieved this, but the document is now
rather different from that which we looked at last week.

Therefore, as determined at today's call minuted at:
we are calling for any objections to moving this analysis document
forward to the HTML WG be registered as responses to this email no later
than 12 Noon Boston Time, this coming Friday 17 December (17:00 UTC).

The document can be found at:


Is this document now ready to forward to the HTML WG?

We are particularly eager to hear from Sean, Frank, and/or Geoff, as you
all have helped create this document.

Special request to Sean: If we have mischaracterized your view of TTML,
if you do, in fact, believe that all our User Requirements require is
available in TTML as currently specified, please identify the specific
profile you believe suffices by correct name and URI, and please
indicate whether this should include the voluntary as well as the
mandatory sections. Our text until today referred to the "basic
profile," but there's not actually a profile called "basic" named at the
TTML page--therefore the request to specify precisely which one is

Thank you all for helping conclude this analysis before our end of year
