xmlspec.xsl and diffspec.xsl
Paul sent email about this at

ACTION to Norm:  Come up with (and implement) a plan to
reorganize xmlspec.xsl and diffspec.xsl to "do the right thing."

Henry reported that DOM4 has removed (or deprecated) access to the
XML Declaration. Our Infoset spec says that standalone, version,
and the encoding are part of the information content of an XML

Henry and Paul think the XML Core WG should send an email
to the Web Applications Working Group (public-webapps@w3.org)
to reinstate the parts of the xml decl that are in the Infoset.

Henry drafted a potential comment at

John filed some thoughts to the contrary at

Henry figures we should discuss this some more.
Norm is having a hard time caring about all this.

ACTION to Henry:  Reach out to the webapps working group
and/or others to try to collect some more data on this issue.

Fully normalized XML
This discussion started with a posting to xml-editor at
but then Norm found some more concerning issues at
wherein different tools handle the combining characters differently.

It doesn't appear that it's obvious what the "right"
answer is.  Perhaps we need to add something to the
XML spec about this.  We need to research this some more.

The XML Core WG email thread is at

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.

Henry has been added as an editor and there is now a new draft,
draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00 at

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

On 9 October 2012, we published our FPWD of XInclude 1.1 at

On 15 January 2013, we published our (first) Last Call of
XInclude 1.1 at
and Paul sent the transition announcement at
(also cc-ing the chairs mailing list).

To date, there has been one comment posted to

Norm posted announcement of the XInclude 1.1 Last Call
to the DocBook list and there have been some comments at

Norm posted announcement of the XInclude 1.1 Last Call
to the xml-dev list at
