     * [17]Summary of Action Items


   Norm apologizes for messing up GMT in the agenda. And for the long delay
   since our last meeting

  Accept this agenda?

   -> [18]http://www.w3.org/2010/html-xml/2011/06/28-agenda


  Accept minutes from the previous meeting?

   -> [19]http://www.w3.org/2010/html-xml/2011/03/08-minutes


  Next meeting: 12 July 2011 (in two weeks)


  Review of comments

   -> [20]http://www.w3.org/2010/html-xml/2011/06/comments/

   Norm: I closed comment 001 as it wasn't really a comment.

  Comment 002 from David Carlisle

   Norm: I think these are all editorial and am happy to accept them. Any

   None heard:

  Comment 003 from Julian Reschke

   Norm: I'm of two minds on this one. I think of XML as having a DTD
   language and a set of vocabularies.

   Henri: I think Julian's point is well taken, I suggest we call it a

   Norm: I'm happy to take that as editorial direction and make a stab at it.
   ... Any objections?

   None heard.

  Comment 004 from Noah Mendelsohn

   Norm: Isn't really acomment...

  Comment 005 from Robin Berjon

   -> [21]http://www.w3.org/2010/html-xml/2011/06/comments/#C005

   Norm: The first two are editorial.
   ... Robin suggests we just say "polyglot has limited applicability"

   Henri: I think Robin's comments all make sense.
   ... I'd say that the the parser doesn't actually guarantee that the output
   is valid, only that it's well defined.

   John: Tagsoup is the same way.

   Norm: Ok, if there's general agreement about Robin's comments, I'll
   attempt to address them all.
   ... Any objections?

   None heard.

  Comment 006 from Henri Sivonen

   Henri: The first comment is about the fact that the draft is misleading.
   It doesn't "just work". It's way overoptimistic. There are issues with,
   for example, empty tags.

   Norm: Perhaps I overstated the case. I'll try to soften that statement. Or
   at least make it more accurate.

   Henri: I suggest just removing the paragraph.

   Norm; That looks reasonable to me.

   Henri: The substance of my next comment matches the substance of one of

   Norm: Ok, I'll try to fix that as well.

   Henri: My next comment is about interfacing subsystems. Using the HTML
   parser when you have XHTML5 in a larger document is just weird. I would
   assume that you wouldn't clip anything out and hand it to an HTML5 parser.
   You'd pass the parsed object model around, not the text.
   ... I don't think the HTML5 parser needs to be involved in any way.
   ... And then there's something about MIME and such and I think that steps
   outside the scope of using an XML document as a container.
   ... It seems out-of-place.

   Norm: That was explicitly called out as one of the possible solutions when
   we were considering the use case.

   Henri: What the document says about the script tag is factually incorrect.
   ... what you get in the DOM is not escaped in any way.

   Norm: Yes, thats's a totally misleading statement. I'll fix that.
   ... Any other questions or comments about Henri's comments?

   None heard.

  Comment 007 from Kurt Cagle

   Norm: I think this is about the same paragraph Robin and Henri commented
   ... Does anyone have any suggestions for the illustration Kurt suggests?

   None heard.

   Henri: I think there's a slippery slope towards rewriting the polyglot
   guide if we go that direction.
   ... I think we can provide some examples without trying to be exhaustive.

   Bob expresses a desire for some examples.

   Yeah, sorry Yves, I borked the agenda because of DST

  Comment 008 from Noah Mendelsohn

   Norm: I think Noah and John have both observed that making XML "more
   forgiving of errors" is a harder problem than the draft suggests.
   ... I'll try to improve that.

  Any other business?
