|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: 
|http://www.w3.org/International/Group/2002/charmod-lc/|#C146
|
|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 
|definition
|        of full-normalization. These definitions MUST include 
|at least the 
|boundaries
|        between markup and character data as well as entity 
|boundaries (if the
|        language has any include mechanism) and SHOULD include 
|any other 
|boundary
|        that may create denormalization when instances of the 
|language are 
|processed."
|
|       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.
