Message-ID: <3E891A2D.8070805@netscape.com>

1.  LAST CALL ANNOUNCEMENT: DOM EVENTS

Due to the large number of comments and suggestions on
the DOM Level 3 Events Specification, there have been a
significant number of changes to the specification.  The W3C
DOM Working Group has decided to issue a 2nd Last Call 
for comments:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-DOM-Level-3-Events-20030331/

2. REQUEST FOR DOCUMENT REVIEW

The DOM WG asks for review of the following document:

Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Events Specification

Abstract: "This specification defines the Document Object 
Model Events Level 3, a generic platform- and language-neutral 
event system which allows registration of event handlers, 
describes event flow through a tree structure, and provides 
basic contextual information for each event. The Document 
Object Model Events Level 3 builds on the Document Object 
Model Events Level 2 [DOM Level 2 Events].

The document is available at:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-DOM-Level-3-Events-20030331/

See Appendix A for a list of changes between DOM Level 2 Events and DOM 
Level 3 Events specifications.

The changes since the first last call impact throughout the
specification, and it is therefore not practical to recommend 
specific parts that have changed more than others.

3. HOW TO SEND COMMENTS

4.  INTENTIONS OF DOM WG

to recommend the document for publication as Candidate Recommendation to 
gain implementation experience.

5. IMPLEMENTATION EXPERIENCE

company, are planning to implement (or already has an implementation of)
