I agree about the multiple files. I did not mean to imply that I preferred one strategy over the other - I haven't made up my mind yet.  :)

Good suggestions for numbering. Here is the updated pdf with section/page/line numbers. I have also attached the source word document.

I agree about not needing to duplicate the IF format since we can readily use IF itself. The support for locator element is optional. Not all implementations may support it which makes it hard to use for interop testing. However, the bigger problem with multiple files is that of change management. Change to one file may affect many tests and thus each person making a change will need to run all implementations against all tests to ensure no breaks. This is one of the reasons why the document recommends a single SML-IF file per test case.

Nice work on the doc, Kumar.

I have a question on the test-description file - 1b. It seems like you wouldn't have to recreate the IF format - you could just use the IF format for the test harness, probably with the locator element. So the test harness would just have to embed the appropriate documents into a final IF file to run the test. And 2d would still apply here.

I also recommend adding page number and line numbers for easy reference - especially if you are not providing a word doc that can be marked up.

Here is the first draft of SML interop test plan. Please review and send your feedback.

I have not included the list of tests because I need to make some updates. I will send it later.
