We have an XML Core WG phone call scheduled for Wednesday,
March 7, from
          08:30-09:00 Pacific time aka
          11:30-12:00 Eastern time aka
          15:30-16:00 UTC
          16:30-17:00 in Ireland and the UK
          17:30-18:00 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 .

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.


In case anyone wonders, the time zones of all WG members
that regularly call into the meeting will still be on
standard (non-daylight) time on March 7.

Our subsequent telcon will be on March 21, which will be
in the "skew zone" period in which North America will be
on daylight time while Europe and the UK will not.  I will
remind members of this issue for the telcon of March 21.


1. Accepting the minutes from the last telcon [3] and
   the current task status [2] (have any questions, comments,
   or corrections ready by the beginning of the call).

2. Miscellaneous administrivia and document reviews.

xml-stylesheet and HTML5
Henry took an action to file a bug about xml-stylesheet
handling.  Done:

Henry has done a lot more testing and filing of results to date.

ACTION to Henry: File a bug against the HTML5 spec saying that
it should support styling XML with CSS.

The CSS2 spec says something about styling XML with CSS.
Henry also notes http://www.w3.org/Style/styling-XML.en.html.

Henry's tests are at
You need to look at the README and README2 files there.

issues with the Polyglot draft
Henry sent email with various potential issues at

Polyglot draft: BOM
We discussed the point about the spec recommending [P1] the use of the 

[P1] http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/#character-encoding

Henry thinks we converged on this in email on Wednesday 11 January:

Henry: I think we should file an issue against Polyglot about the BOM.

ACTION: Henry to file an issue against Polyglot about the BOM.

Polyglot draft: xml:space and xml:base
See the minutes at
for the discussion.

ACTION: Henry to draft an issue regarding xml:space and xml:base in
         the Polyglot draft for WG review.

3.  XML Test Suite.

See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-test-suite

ACTION to Henry:  Construct a test case for the XML test suite
issues raised by Frans Englich:

4.  LEIRIs--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#leiri

We have planned to issue the following spec editions referencing
LEIRIs (and any outstanding errata):

* XML 1.0 6th Edition (John to be editor)
* XML 1.1 3rd Edition (John to be editor)
* XInclude 3rd Edition (Paul to be editor)

but all this is on hold awaiting resolution of IRIbis.

5.  XInclude 1.1--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude

On 2012 February 14, we published
XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases
summarizing the requirements and use cases for possible
enhancements to XInclude addressing the issues:

* @xpointer when parse="text"
* copying attributes from the xinclude element to the root
  included element

Before producing an XInclude 1.1, we will need an amended
charter as indicated by Ian at

We should wait to see what if any feedback we get from the
published requirements and use cases and then, if we want
to go ahead with an XInclude 1.1, we should look into amending
our charter.

ACTION to Norm:  Publicize the XInclude 1.1 Requirement and
Use Cases WG Note to potentially interested parties (e.g.,
the DocBook TC and others--would the XProc WG have any
interest?) and see if you can drum up any feedback.
