In reponse to your mail
about the XML Events specification

I have summarised your comments, and include our responses:

* Eliminate the target attribute, and rename the observer attribute to

It would be wrong to rename the observer attribute to 'target', because
observer and target are two different concepts, and many things would break
if you only listened on the target.
It would be possible to eliminate the target attribute (and retain the
observer attribute), but there are cases where it is useful to specify the
target as well.

* No Qname

We agree. We have removed references to Qnames..

* Discuss SVG events here.

We have added a mention at the appropriate place.

* Use the names as defined in the DOM spec

We agree. We now do not list them, but refer directly to the DOM2 Events
spec for names and semantics.

* List the DOM2 Events spec

We agree. Done

* Use the same names as the DOM2 spec does

We agree. See above.

* 'handler' should be an idref (not a URI) and reference an <object>

No. 'Handler' should be able to reference an external handler, so is
therefore a URI. We don't define (in this spec) what it points to, to allow
for maximum flexibility. A future companion spec will define options for

* Include a schema


With regards to your second email:
(624) change mime type for ecmascript

We were planning on doing that, but a registration for text/ecmascript is
not yet available. We will leave the current spec as it is until a proper
registration is available.

Please reply to this mail indicating whether you can live with these
decisions, and if not where you still disagree. If we have received no reply
within two weeks, we will assume your agreement.

Many thanks, and best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
