The semantics of TTML is specified in terms of XSL:FO, it does not require an XSL:FO implementation.  The majority of the style features in TTML are already found in CSS. The W3C has an implementation of TTML based on conversion into HTML & CSS.

with supporting both, srt and dfxp (or ttml as Sean clarified).


  What DFXP profile are you suggesting we mandate?

  As Maciej noted [1], even the presentation profile requires XSL-FO. Does anyone actually think it is reasonable to require a UA to implement this substantial spec just to style captions?
