<apphillips> xml:id 
<apphillips> by acclamation... accepted the resolution

[CharMod and IRI Pages]

<apphillips> three new pages. 
<apphillips> 2 issue pages are up now (with some issues) 
<apphillips> testing page is up 
<MJDuerst> http://www.w3.org/International/2005/charmod-edit/comments.html
<MJDuerst> http://www.w3.org/International/2005/charmod-resid-edit/comments.html
<MJDuerst> http://www.w3.org/International/iri-edit/testing.html
<apphillips> please provide comments on these as appropriate 
<apphillips> IRI test list: needs to have a list for each axis 
<apphillips> --- 

NOTA BENE:
<apphillips> links on the comments pages in left hand column points to itself. 
<apphillips> This is a feature. 
<apphillips> It allows the user to click on item and get the URI that points to that item in their address bar 
<apphillips> --- 
<apphillips> "Character Model: a fine document, everyone should have one" 
<apphillips> Provide testimonials.

Also: Yes, yes, yes, Addison uses an IBM classic keyboard, so everyone can tell when he's typing the notes. Sheesh.

[PR/CR Comment Review]

<apphillips> http://www.w3.org/International/2005/charmod-edit/comments.html#ISO-URI-01 
<apphillips> editorial comment. 
<apphillips> --- 
<apphillips> NB> we won't have to bless CharMod again 
<apphillips> (but testimonials would be very valuable) 
<apphillips> --- 
<apphillips> richard: please to respond to Kuro (tomorrow would be good if possible) 
<apphillips> MD: to populate the table with it when response goes out 
<apphillips> MD: to add Bjoern's comments into the table 
<apphillips> ---- 

[Normalization]

<apphillips> CharModNorm 
<apphillips> addison: summary of where I think we left off 
<apphillips> AP: to send links to last emails out 
<apphillips> (reminder) read CharReq document 
<apphillips> Need to decide if the old requirements still hold 
<apphillips> or if they need updates. 
<apphillips> two things: 1) how do we organize ourselves for success and 2) how is sucess defined? 
<apphillips> --- 
<apphillips> http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-charreq 
<apphillips> Martin: 
<apphillips> requirements talks about EUN 
<apphillips> makes a good case for motivating that 
<apphillips> how important is it for the infrastructure? 
<apphillips> more important for identifiers than for running text 
<apphillips> doc doesn't distinguish this and spec doesn't eiter 
<apphillips> spec deals with a lot of edge cases 
<Zakim> -Martin
<apphillips> FY: 2.1 and 4.1 are most important 
 
<apphillips> FY: 3.1 doesn't appear to be a requirement, but rather a solution

AP: we appear not to have met this requirement: :-P
<apphillips>  4.7 The String indexing specification shall be prepared quickly  
<apphillips> Several upcoming W3C specifications depend on a clear character model and in particular on clear definitions for string indexing. It is therefore crucial that no time is lost.  

<apphillips> RI: need a proposal 
<apphillips> AP: need to identify cases similar to identifiers 
<apphillips> (where normalization is a requirement) 
<apphillips> once EUN is out the window, then Late Normalization is the source of requirements 
<apphillips> FY:market has already gone there 
<apphillips> FY will try to take a pass through. 
<apphillips> FY:stylesheets and whatnot up to date? 
<apphillips> RI: to check 
<apphillips> (can check tomorrow)
