Status and open actions

Error Recovery Note
Liam raised an issue about a note about error recovery at

Neither Paul nor Norm thought creating such a note was
going to be particularly useful, and Paul wondered why
the XML Core WG should write a note about something that
is not XML, but we decided we would pick this up when
Liam and others can be on the call.

There will be a TPAC meeting in Lyon, France in October/November:

We have signed up to have a WG f2f there.

Likely to attend:  Norm, Liam, Henry, Jirka, Mohamed
Not likely to attend:  Glenn, Paul, John, Daniel

xml-stylesheet and HTML5
Hnery 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.
Henry's tests are at
You need to look at the README and README2 files there.

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

Henry has filed bugs against the HTML5 spec saying that
it should support styling XML with CSS. Currently, there are:

[Bug 17976] New: xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled 
[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.

XInclude 1.1
On 2012 February 14, we published
XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases

Norm created a first draft XInclude 1.1 which is at
The latest is dated 12 Sep 2012 and includes an
updated SOTD and all the changes Norm was going to make.

Paul, Norm, Jirka, and John have reviewed and have no

Mohamed reviewed it and suggested:

  Now that we open the value for parse, probably it's
  worth having a new section "Included Items when parse
  is neither xml neither text"

ACTION to Henry, Glenn, Daniel, Liam:  Review
and comment on the XInclude 1.1 draft.

Paul thinks we should publish an FPWD for XInclude 1.1
by mid-October so that it will have been out before TPAC.
We will plan to approve the FPWD for publication on
our Oct 3 telcon so that I can request publication around
October 9.

XML Model
Associating Schemas with XML documents 1.0 (Second Edition)
was published at
on 11 August 2011.

Jirka has informed us that the ISO version can be downloaded
for free from:

(Note, you have to accept the ISO license agreement before download.)

As for updating our note, Jirka suggests that we can just change:

"However, this specification is being jointly developed by
W3C and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34. The technical content of this
specification and that of ISO/IEC 19757-11 is expected to
be identical, so the basic content of this WG Note may
be---or may become---referenceable in another form."


"However, this specification is being jointly developed by
W3C and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34. The technical content of this
specification and that of ISO/IEC 19757-11 is identical."

and add ISO/IEC 19757-11 to our Normative References.

ACTION to Paul:  Make the necessary edits to our XML Model
WG Note so that we can issue a 3rd Edition.
