The XML Core WG requests transition of 
  Namespaces in XML 1.0 (Third Edition)
available at
to a Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER).  

The Namespaces in XML 1.0 Second Edition was published on 16 August 2006

at http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-names-20060816/
as a Recommendation.  

Changes since the previous edition are outlined in Appendix D and a 
diff-marked review copy of this PER is available at
The changes are to apply the existing errata listed at
which are all editorial in nature.  Given this, we are suggesting 
that we may not need a PER Transition telcon.
The WG's decision to request transition to a PER was taken 
during a WG telcon on 2008 July 29 whose minutes may be found at


We propose a publication date of 6 August 2009.

We propose that the PER period lasts from the date of publication
until 14 September 2009.


 Namespaces in XML 1.0 (Third Edition)

XML namespaces provide a simple method for qualifying element and
