Hi!

I just found that the "Acknowledgement" section, which is included in all our documents, uses the term "working group" sometimes with capital letters and sometimes not.

[[
[...]
--> The working group 
also considered postponed issues from
--> the WebOnt Working Group.
This document has been produced by
--> the OWL Working Group 
(see below), and its contents reflect extensive discussions within
--> the Working Group 
as a whole. 
[...]
The regular attendees at meetings of

at the time of publication of this document were:
]]

Maybe in the case of "OWL Working Group" and "WebOnt Working Group" it is justified to use a capitalized form, since these can be considered names. However, there are two cases where only "the [W|w]orking [G|g]roup" is mentioned, once in capitalized form and once not.

In order to resolve this issue, I suggest to schedule a half-an-hour slot at our next TC to discuss in detail whether our working group is GREAT or not. ;-)

Cheers,
Michael
