XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.1

of XML information sets into a single composite infoset.
Specification of the XML documents (infosets) to be merged and
control over the merging process is expressed in XML-friendly
syntax (elements, attributes, URI references).

This is a Last Call Working Draft of XInclude 1.1 for review by
W3C Members and other interested parties.  The Last Call period
ends 22 February 2013.

XInclude 1.1 adds some upward-compatible enhancements to the
XInclude 1.0 Recommendation as discussed in the XInclude 1.1
Requirement and Use Cases document. The three key enhancements
can be summarized as follows:

* added support for a fragment identifier into text/plain content,

* additional processing to allow for "annotating" the post-included
   infoset with further information, and

* allow implementations the flexibility to support additional |parse|

Working Draft to Recommendation Status.
