Hi,

I would like to know what is the status of XMLSpec materials. I have 
seen on the page the XML Spec Schema and stylesheets [1] page that the 
last version of the material is numbered 2.8 on Feb 2004 [2]

I see also that it seems Norman Walsh is in charge of this document. I 
was wondering if the development too?

It seems there's no recent tutorial for XMLSPec [3] and there's no 
"fake" document as a test suite to show the input markup and the output 
markup.

My questions/comments:
	- I am inclined to help on the XHTML output of XMLSpec (I'm not a 
top-gun XSLT creator but I have notions and at least for XHTML markup 
semantics I have very good knowledge)
	- I proposed to rewrite the tutorial if it seems necessary or at least 
to update it.
	- I proposed to create a fake document covering all cases of XMLSpec, 
and that will constitute a kind of test suite for the style sheet.

Does it seem reasonable or am I putting my feet in the plate of someone 
else?
