hello.

we have just submitted the first draft of "URI Fragment Identifiers for 
the text/csv Media Type" as an internet draft, it can be found at 
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-hausenblas-csv-fragment/ and at 
all the usual places. the abstract reads as follows:

"This memo defines URI fragment identifiers for text/csv MIME entities. 
These fragment identifiers make it possible to refer to parts of a 
text/csv MIME entity, identified by cell, row, column, or slice."

any comments about this draft are very welcome. our goal is to improve 
the web of data by adding fragment identification capabilities to the 
popular CSV format, so that references to URI-identified CSV resources 
can point *into* the resource (by cell, row, column, or slice) instead 
of just pointing *to* he resource.

in addition, we have set up http://www.csvdata.info/ as a place to 
collect resources and pointers about this initiative. please feel free 
to suggest additions that you think might make this web site more 
helpful and relevant for CSV in general, and for CSV fragment 
identification in general.

thanks a lot and kind regards,

michael hausenblas and erik wilde.
