We have an XML Core WG phone call scheduled for Wednesday, 
October 24, from
          08:00-09:00 Pacific time aka
          11:00-12:00 Eastern time aka
          15:00-16:00 UTC

          17:00-18:00 in middle (most of) Europe
on the Zakim W3C Bridge, +1 617 761 6200, passcode 9652#.
We also use IRC channel #xmlcore on irc.w3.org:6665 .


In case anyone is wondering, all WG members that customarily
dial into the XML Core call are in locales that are still
observing DST this week.  By the time of our f2f (which is 
our next meeting after this week), we will all be observing 
standard time.

Note, however, that the UK and Europe shift back to standard
time this Sunday October 28th whereas North America doesn't
shift back to standard time until Sunday November 4.  So if
you are traveling from Europe to North America between Oct 28
and Nov 4, be aware of local time issues.


See the XML Core group page [1] for pointers to current documents
and other information.  If you have additions to the agenda, please
email them to the WG list before the start of the telcon.

Please also review our group page's task list [2] for accuracy and
completeness and be prepared to amend if necessary and accept it
at the beginning of the call.

Regrets from Norm.

A report of the outcome is at:

Regarding the change from 1.0 to 1.1 highlighted in

Regarding point 2 of the interoperability email, it sounds like
the issue is explained well in the email.  Glenn will try to
propose some wording to the XML Core list.

ACTION to Glenn:  Propose some new wording to address point 2
of the interoperability testing feedback email.

Point 3 complains about appendix A being too difficult to
