ACTION to Glenn continued.

> xml-stylesheet and HTML5
> ------------------------
> Henry took an action to file a bug about xml-stylesheet
> handling.  Done:
> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=14689
> [Bug 17976] New: xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled 
> explicitly

> [Bug 14689] xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled 
> explicitly
> A lot of bugzilla email has been exchanged on this issue.
> It looks like we have agreement to address it, but only
> in HTML.next.
> This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.  The conclusion was
> for Norm to pass on to the HTML5 WG suggested text for a
> non-normative note to be included in the HTML5 1.0 spec
> which he did:
> https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=14689#c35

We believe there was agreement to put some words into the spec.

ACTION to Norm:  Check with Robin that some words will be going
into the spec.

> MicroXML
> --------
> This is the W3C Community Group work on a subset of XML. See
> http://www.w3.org/community/microxml/
> and
> http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/microxml/raw-file/tip/spec/microxml.html
> Henry says that if they do decide to standardize it, we
> should do it.  We do own that name.  Meanwhile, we will
> wait and see what the Community Group produces.

ACTION to John:  Ask the Comm Group what they want to do
with this spec.

Henry asks that the new XML WG charter be vetted by us
when it is still a draft, as he doesn't want the WG to
be required to do anything with MicroXML.

> Names that begin [Xx][Mm][Ll]
> -----------------------------
> This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.
> Norm: proposed erratum
>    s/in this or future versions of this specification/
>     /in this or future specifications from the XML Core WG or its successors/
> Henry: I'm perfectly happy to entertain a motion to remove this from
> this specification and retain the "xml:" prefix only for elements and
> attributes and "xml-" only for PI targets.
> Norm: I'd prefer to make explicit that you *can* write names that
> begin "xml", but doing so exposes you to being walked on in the
> future. So don't do that.
> Jirka: I can go either way, it's always been a restriction, users
> should know better, but there are lots of documents that use it,
> so we should adapt to common practice.
> ACTION: Jirka to start an email thread about this issue on the
> XML Core WG mailing list.

Jirka sent email at

ACTION to Norm:  Draft an erratum to "reserve" xml-* for PI targets
and delete the restriction that we lay claim to other names that
start with "xml".

> 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:
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-testsuite/2007Mar/
> 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.
> Henry has been added as an editor and there is now a new draft,
> draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00 at
> http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00
> We now await this going through the IETF process.
> 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
> http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude-11-requirements/
> On 9 October 2012, we published our FPWD of XInclude 1.1 at
> http://www.w3.org/XML/2012/10/WD-xinclude-11-20121009/
> This was discussed at the TPAC f2f and there was agreement
> on how to use MIME content types for the value of the parse
> attribute.
> ACTION: Norm to revise the XInclude 1.1 draft to use media types
> for the parse attribute.

ACTION to Norm continued.

> 6.  XML Model
> Jirka points out that the 3rd Edition at
> http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-xml-model-20121009/
> doesn't properly show the deletions made in a paragraph
> in the SOTD.  Paul determined this was because the stylesheet
> used wasn't set up to handle deletions.  He has fixed the
> stylesheet, but now needs to find out what it will take
> to fix the published note.
> ACTION to Paul:  Check with W3C staff to determine how
> best to fix the HTML non-diff version (Overview.html) of
> the XML Model 3rd Edition.

Paul has communicated with W3T and the Overview.html
document (and the style sheet) have been edited in place.

Henry points out that we should revisit the issue of the
xmlspec.xsl (and diffspec.xsl) on a more general basis
for future specs.
