I've begun editing the language spec in earnest, attempting to
integrate the things we've decided, planning to integrate the
editorial comments that I've been sent, and making up what's necessary
as I go along.

If you want to follow along, I'm checking things into 

  http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/langspec.html

as I go. Probably about daily. But that doesn't mean there's any real
editorial stability from one day to the next.

Today's draft has been reorganized a little, contains sections for all
the p:* elements we've discussed (including p:viewport-source which I
had to invent), attempts to describe things in terms of atomic and
compound components since it didn't seem to make much sense to
distinguish between steps and language constructs now that we don't
have a p:step, and tries to resolve some issues about the environment
and default inputs in a practical way.

I'm still not sure I like having information split between Section 3
and Section 4.2 but last time I tried to change that, I got more nays
than yeahs.

Comments welcome, but only if you feel like reading the work in
progress.

Comments on things marked "Editorial notes" might be most useful.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
