The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

Our next telcon will be 2010 August 11.

Status and open actions

TAG concern wrt 3023bis, +xml media types and fragids
Henry sent email about this at

3023bis says that the +xml implies that the resource is suitable for 
processing by generic xml processors.  And it says that such xml
processors should handle fragment ids.  Specifically, handling the
fragment identifiers in an rdf+xml document is not something that a 
generic xml processor could do.

The TAG was leaning toward removing the statement from 3023bis that
says that fragid syntax and semantics is something that any generic
xml processor can handle in a +xml resource.

Norm and John (among others) weighed in; see the thread at
Norm's latest (as of July 18) is at

We've seen no progress on this since July 14.

We'll ask Henry for a TAG status on this on August 11.

Associating Stylesheets

We are working toward a PER for AssocSS 2nd Edition.

Our latest public draft is at

The transition request for AssocSS is at

We had an unsuccessful transition call last week.  See

The editors drafted new wording for Section 2 Conformance; see

Paul sent email to Daniel Glazman and TimBL requesting comment at
and there was no response.

Liam talked to TimBL July 1 and sent some sketchy email at
explaining what to do next.

At our telcon of July 28, after some discussion and a vote,
the WG agreed to add the following paragraph verbatim 
as a second paragraph to the Note in section 2:

 At the time of edition 1 (1999) the meaning of these
 p-attributes was not well specified, and at the time
 of edition 2 (2010) there is low interoperability in
 the values between implementations; future work may
 clarify this.

ACTION to the editors (Henry upon his return?):  Update 
the 20 April 2010 draft PER of AssocSS as follows:

1.  Add the above quoted paragraph verbatim as a second
    paragraph to the Note in section 2.

2.  Change the pub dates (in the subtitle, this version
    URL [both published and the href], and anywhere else
    as necessary) to 19 August 2010.

3.  Change the end review date in the SotD to 24 September 2010.

Then regenerate both the HTML and the diff-marked HTML.

ACTION to Paul (once there is an updated draft):  Send email 
to TimBL and DanielG pointing to the latest draft and requesting 

ACTION to Liam:  Do whatever is necessary to get AssocSS 
out as PER (asking Paul for a pub request if necessary).

XML Model

Jirka reports status in SC34 as follows:

XML Model is now under the ballot which closes at the of August. 
In the middle of September we have SC34 face-to-face meeting 
where we will discuss comments received during ballot.

My plan is to go back to XML Core WG with comments and proposed
resolutions in the second half of September.
