Dear Advisory Committee representative,

This is a W3C Patent Policy Call for Exclusions for the following
Recommendation Track documents:

- XHTML™ 1.1 - Module-based XHTML - Second Edition
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on 16 July 2007

- XML Events 2
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-events),
  exclusion opportunity ending on 16 July 2007

These specifications were produced by the XHTML2 Working Group
(under its previous name, the HTML Working Group).

If you do not wish to exclude patent claims during this exclusion
opportunity, no further action is required.

Participants will make a Royalty-Free licensing commitment upon 
(re-)joining this Working Group. With the transition of this group 
to the W3C Patent Policy and per the Patent Policy Transition Procedure [0], 
Participants have an opportunity until 16 July 2007 to exclude patent claims 
reading on these documents. For more information about exclusions, please see
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/#sec-Exclusion

To make exclusions, please use the following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32107/exclude

The Patent Policy anticipates that the documents will evolve during the 90
days following the first publication.  Per section 4.1 of the Patent Policy
[1], whatever draft is available on 17 May 2007 establishes the reference
material for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just after 17 May
2007, we will send a reminder and identify the reference draft. Due to the
anticipated instability of the documents prior to 17 May 2007,
Participants may wish to exclude any claims only after publication of the
reference draft (and no later than the end of the exclusion opportunity).

Per section 4.2 of the Patent Policy [2], a Participant may resign from
the Working Group before 17 May 2007 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 17 May 2007, please use the
following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32107/join

Summary information for this group related to the W3C Patent Policy is
available at:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32107/status

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact,
for the XHTML2 Working Group:
 * Steven Pemberton at steven.pemberton@cwi.nl

For more information on the W3C Patent Policy and patent claim
exclusions, see:
  http://www.w3.org/2003/12/22-pp-faq

Note: These documents were first published as Working
Drafts within the past 90 days; I will be sending another Call for 
Exclusion for documents published more than 91 days ago,
per the Patent Policy Transition Procedure [0].

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications
