Hi Dave, 

I'm afraid to say it looks like I will not be able to attend as I'm swamped; my regrets.

As regards DIAL, just to say, I believe that using the standard ?xml stylesheet? processing instruction in an HTML document to refer to a standard XSLT makes more sense to me than a proprietary processing instruction (as suggested by Josť). A standard approach stands more chance of being adopted and can make use of the XSLT developer community.

To me the missing piece, which will facilitate the uptake of this 'DIAL-lite' approach, is a standardised delivery context API, the functions of which may be mapped to DIAL expressions for evaluation at runtime. The work on DCCI and in the DDR API provides part of the solution, another (mobile oriented) part is the GSMA API I mentioned which will standardise 3rd party web access to mobile operator functions (location, identity, etc.). Ideally, a developer would be able to write one content selection XSLT with expressions that could be evaluated whether the context was a mobile device, PC over broadband, etc. Is it a goal of the UWA to provide a standard API for all of the Delivery Context Ontology? If so we could map these to DIAL expressions and hence XSLT functions.

Cheers,
Kevin
