Kumar: Source XML does in fact produce another XML
... in which we need to add by hand the stylesheet ref
Henry: Sounds good. Close the bug.
Kumar: Will update bug to point to email, and close after finishing actions.
Len: We talked through proposed changes last week, but I haven't had time to update the HTML doc. Will have a draft for next week.
Kirk: Should inline references be used with brackets?
... Ginny suggests following W3 style manual.
... See section 7.2 in the manual.
Len: 7.2 deals with citations to specs that appear in the References section of the doc. What about hyperlinks to "terms of art"?
Ginny: Are terms of art mentioned in the manual?
Len: Not that I can find.
Henry: Experience has shown that hyperlinking everything of interest makes docs hard to read
Ginny: SML and SML-IF specs do not use brackets around terms of art.
Len: In that case, I suggest we drop the brackets in order to be consistent with our own specs.
John: The editors please resolve this offline. We need to move on to Rec track items.
<johnarwe_> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sml/2009Mar/0038.html ht's email
Henry: I spoke to the AC and pinged the reviewer who
submitted the formal objection
... I've proposed language in the references which should resolve the objection
... Implementors MUST support XML 4th edition, MAY support later editions
<johnarwe_> nb: the bug (and erratum) are both on the xml namespaces spec
<johnarwe_> Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Fourth Edition), T. Bray,
<johnarwe_> J. Paoli, C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, and E. Maler, Editors. World Wide
<johnarwe_> Web Consortium, 10 February 1998, revised 16 August 2006. This
<johnarwe_> edition of the XML 1.0 Recommendation
<johnarwe_> (http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-20060816) was the one current at
<johnarwe_> the time this document went to Candidate Recommendation. The latest
<johnarwe_> version of XML 1.0 is available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/.
<johnarwe_> Implementations may follow the edition cited or any later
<johnarwe_> edition(s); it is implementation-defined which.
Len: Suggest slight rewording from "it is
implementation-defined which" to "it is implementation-defined which edition(s)
are supported by the implementation".
... That's the very last clause in both references.
Ginny: Sandy pointed out that the namespace is the same for 4th and 5th eds.
Henry: Sandy found a bug. An erratum has been issued to fix that.
Ginny: What's the impact of following 5th ed?
... Will a 5th ed. XML processor be able to handle a model authored against 4th ed?
RESOLUTION: Wording in references will be changed per Len's suggestion.
