Lofton,

I browsed the archives and could not find any additional WebCGM 2.0 errata.

There is a message [1], for which I am not sure we gave an answer to the 
commenter, about section 3.4, how to use the object element to include a 
WebCGM file in a HTML document.


The WebCGM 2.0 PR [2] says:
<object data="xxx.cgm" type="image/cgm;Version=4;ProfileId=WebCGM"; 
width="200" height="100" />

And this was corrected in the WebCGM 2.0 REC version [3] as it says:
<object data="xxx.cgm" type="image/cgm;Version=4;ProfileId=WebCGM" 
width="200" height="100" />

so it looks OK, as the semicolon was removed.

Maybe we should thank the commenter (as he sent some new errata candidate).
