/ "Ian B. Jacobs" <ij@w3.org> was heard to say:
| Chairs,
| If you have already published such internal drafts (sometimes called
| "Editor's Drafts") and they do not follow these guidelines, please
| consider revising them. In many cases, this may be as simple as
| changing a link to a style sheet and changing "Working Draft" to
| "Internal Draft" or "Editor's Draft"; see the guidelines for more
| information.

This afternoon, I published Version 2.9 of the XML Spec DTD and a
corresponding Version 1.12 of the HTML and XHTML stylesheets for same.

In V2.9, the w3c-doctype attribute of <spec> has a new value, 'review'.

If you set w3c-doctype="review" or put the word "Editor" in the
<w3c-doctype> element of the header (yes, having both an element and
an attribute is redundant, yes, I wish it hadn't been done that way,
no, I'm not introducing the backwards incompatible change that would
be required to fix it), V1.12 of the stylesheets will generate an
"Editor's Draft" that conforms with the guidelines Ian posted.

The V1.12 stylesheets also output documents in utf-8 as that's now
the default for documents on the TR page.
