Dear XHTML2 WG,

I'm forwarding this message that was sent to the Advisory Committee  
earlier
this week. Philippe Le Hégaret spoke with the Chairs before we sent
this announcement.

Let me know if you have any questions.

----
Following issues raised by Björn Höhrmann [1] and brought to our
attention through other channels, we have rescinded the decision [2]  
to advance four
XHTML specifications to Proposed Recommendation:

      XHTML 1.1 - Second Edition
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PER-xhtml11-20090507/

      XHTML Basic 1.1 - Second Edition
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PER-xhtml-basic-20090507/

      XHTML Print - Second Edition
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PER-xhtml-print-20090507/

      XHTML 1.0 The Extensible HyperText Markup Language
      Third Edition
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PER-xhtml1-20090507/

Björn Höhrmann outlined outstanding issues regarding all four
specifications, but those issues may not have been addressed and
were not mentioned in the transition request [3]. The W3C Process
(section 7.2 [4]) requires that a Working Group must "[f]ormally  
address all
issues raised about the document since the previous step." Groups  
report such
information in transition requests [5].

We hereby rescind the previous decision to publish these Proposed
Edited Recommendations.

After review of the outstanding issues, the XHTML2 Working Group may
wish to request publication anew. we ask that the group be sure to
highlight in any transition request which changes would affect
conformance. The Working Group may also wish to consider any issues  
raised by the AC since the
7 May transition (in the review form [6]).

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Philippe Le Hégaret, Interaction Domain Lead, and
Steven Pemberton, XHTML2 Working Group Team Contact;
