C14N 1.1

Konrad had pointed out some issues with Appendix A.  He sent email
with the latest suggested updated version of Appendix A and examples:

The latest HRRI draft was published as an ID on May 14 at

We are going through Martin's comments.  There has been some 
more email during the last week.  See especially the June archive 
for several threads and various emails on the subject:

ACTION to Norm:  Reply to Martin that we don't think we
can say that system identifiers are IRIs UNLESS the
weasel words in the IRI spec (3987) allow all characters 
that can be in system identifiers.

ACTION to Norm:  Incorporate changes from Richard about
character classes and security and issue a new draft.

XML 1.0/1.1
ACTION to Francois:  Update the PE document per previous 
telcons' decisions.

On PE 157, John sent email at
with his suggested response and a question for the WG:

> Should we add specific references to UTF-16BE, UTF-16LE, CESU-8,
> etc. etc. to 4.3.3?  If so, we might as well remove "We consider the
> first case first" from Appendix F; it's more than obvious.

We agreed that, according to the spec, such a character is not a BOM.

We have decided that John's email should be sent to the commentor
as a response (done, see [11]), and that the only change resulting from 
this PE are some editorial changes as outlined in John's email at

ACTION to Francois:  Update the PE document with John's editorial
changes as the proposed resolution to PE 157.

[11] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-editor/2006OctDec/0010


John sent email about a new PE related to UTF-8 BOM at
proposing the following language as a new paragraph in 4.3.3
for both XML 1.0 and XML 1.1:

	If the replacement text of an external entity is to
	begin with the character U+FEFF, and no text declaration
	is present, then a Byte Order Mark MUST be present,
	whether the entity is encoded in UTF-8 or UTF-16.

ACTION to Francois:  Add a new PE per John's comments above
and make some suggested resolution wording.
