Let me know when you have these items done so that the HTML WG Chairs can start a one week CfC in the HTML WG.

With no dissent, this call passes. We will therefore request the HTML and PF Working Groups to publish a Last Call of HTML Image Description Extension with a 60-day last call period. I will publish a new Editor's draft to go with the request, with a Status of the Document that clarifies the last call period, etc.

Cheers
