That is true.  I had actually copied the SVG 2 files for publication 
before your colour changes were merged in.  Do you think we should 
include them (now that I have to do some pubrules fixes to get the 
document in order anyway)?

Actually, reading your later comments I think you did expect it to be 
part of the FPWD.  I'll include it then, unless there are objections. 
(Sorry for the obstinacy -- just trying to follow my rules for "did the 
WG review this section for publication".)

OK.  I will work on the styling.

OK.  (I must have forgotten.)

Yes I think we can do that at our leisure.

No, that's not critical.

Let's discuss it in a telcon.

That might well be how we define it.  (See my other thread which you've 
replied to...)

OK. :)

Let me know if you're able to make the small changes (like the 1.2T 
links) before tomorrow (Thursday being the current scheduled publication 
date, if I can get it in shape by then), otherwise I can do them.
