roll call 11:00am ET,

Action: update web page

    lofton - the home page has been updated to show the new working

next F2F: Ann Arbor

    lofton - looks like we are leaning toward the late April date in Ann

Open technical threads

    item c) - resolved to keep int-styl SP; explain how SPs work

    item d.) [Resolved] Initial Values of new 2.1 SPs

    benoit - would prefer to not use a quoted value. Something like
    C_METAFILE might be better [Ed. recalls it as >metafile value<,
    unquoted to avoid legal-value implication, and explained as per
    "Initial value" paragraph under SP table in current-editor-21

    item e.) [Resolved] getObjectExtent for raster elements -- will add
    sentence to gOE w/ refs to CGM:1999 definitions of the appropriate

    item f.) other getObjectExtent questions: clipping

    lofton - proposes that clipping does not affect gOE


    item g.) other getObjectExtent questions: text

    Benoit guessed that non restricted text will occur in real DOM
    applications, despite WebCGM limitation to RestrText.

    lofton - might need a non normative statement describing how to
    combine the boxes of the individual characters in non 2.1 instances.
    In any case, text will not be treated as a "path" for gOE

    item h.) ACI formulation of dashLength

    all agree that this should be an attribute coded as a
    list-of-numbers and issue should be closed

    item i.) return mode of getStyleProperty

    people that commented agreed with "same mode as set with

    item j.) [Reopened] clarification of scale() method

    tenatively we will add a center point.

    if scale is in XCF files then it will need to change there as well.
