           Summary: HTTP examples using RFC2629 markup
           Product: WebDAV-RFC2518-bis
           Version: -08
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: joe-bugzilla@cursive.net
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@greenbytes.de
         QAContact: w3c-dist-auth@w3.org

Currently the spec puts all (or most) HTTP request/response examples into a
single RCF2629 artwork element. This has several disadvantages:

- xm2rfc processors will not be aware that the whitespace between request and
response is a good place for a page break

- automatic XML checks in artwork fail (see

Also, putting the strings ">>> Request" and ">>> Response" into the figure
preambles will make it easier to read in non-plain-ASCII versions of the spec
(yes, this is cosmetic).

Should we have consensus for this change, I'm volunteering to make it.
