The XML Core WG requests transition of 
  Associating Style Sheets with XML documents 1.0 (Second Edition)
available at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2010/04/xml-stylesheet/
to a Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER).  

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only 
version of the specification as of 14 April 2010,   
dated to reflect the expected publication date of
20 April 2010 and designed to be published by having
the directory moved over to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/PER-xml-stylesheet-20100420/   
in its entirety.

[The document has been run through checklinks and pubules.
The only issue is that I don't know what to do about the
patent policy for this document whose first edition 
pre-dated any patent policy.  I tried to check what I
thought made sense in pubrules, but it still gave me
an error that didn't seem right to me.  If someone can 
tell us what to do, we'll do it.]

The Associating Style Sheets with XML documents 1.0 (First 
Edition) was published on 29 June 1999 at
http://www.w3.org/1999/06/REC-xml-stylesheet-19990629/
as a Recommendation.  

This second edition incorporates all known errata as of the 
publication date, clarifies several areas left unspecified 
in the earlier edition, and has been restructured to allow 
other specifications to reuse the rules for parsing 
pseudo-attributes from a string. This edition, once it 
becomes a Recommendation, will supersede the previous edition 
of 29 June 1999.

Changes since the first edition are outlined in Appendix B.

Several editor's drafts of this Second Edition have been 
published, most recently that of 2010 March 22 at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2010/03/xml-stylesheet/
and comments have been solicited and reflected in this
latest draft PER as indicated in a Disposition of Comments at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2010/01/disposition.html.
 
The WG's decision to request transition to a PER was taken 
during a WG telcon on April 7 whose minutes may be found at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2010Apr/0007


SCHEDULE

We propose a publication date of 20 April 2010.

We propose that the PER period lasts from the date of publication
until 22 May 2010.

This second edition incorporates all known errata as of the publication

W3C Advisory Committee Members are invited to send formal review

Representatives should consult their WBS questionnaires. The 
public is invited to send comments on this document to

Publication as a Proposed Edited Recommendation does not imply 
endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document 
and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents 
at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other

W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection
with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions
for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a
patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must
disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent
Policy.
