Hello Mark, dear XSL WG,

The I18N WG has made quite some progress on a lot of the issues
raised in the 2nd last call of the Character Model.
However, we still have a few open issues; we hope to be done
with them very soon.

One of them is:
where we would like to get your help.

XSL WG Comments on Character Model WD

     * Comment (received 2002-06-28) -- XSL WG Comments on Chairacter Model WD

       "[S] Specifications of text-based languages and protocols SHOULD define
        precisely the construct boundaries necessary to obtain a complete 
        of full-normalization. These definitions MUST include at least the 
        between markup and character data as well as entity boundaries (if the
        language has any include mechanism) and SHOULD include any other 
        that may create denormalization when instances of the language are 

       The requirement (still in 4.4) about defining construct boundaries 
is very
       unclear when applied to a language that performs dynamic 
manipulation of strings.

     * [MD will write to ask what is unclear]

Can you please expand on your comment and tell us in more detail
what you find unclear, or how you think it could become clearer?

Many thanks in advance for a timely response.

Regards,     Martin.
