Hello, QAWG.

Since I could not make this trip to Dublin, Karl asked me if I could  
give a rapid overview of the activity in and around the QAIG since our  
previous meeting. Below is a summary of discussions publications and  
software releases I could remember or track.

Almost all discussions/publications focused on Web  
authoring/HTML/markup languages, with only a few exceptions.

Publications:
- "wasp asks w3c - object part 2" (published at WASP)
     http://webstandards.org/learn/askw3c/jun2004.html
- "more about custom dtds" (published at ALA)
     http://www.alistapart.com/articles/customdtds2/
- "Ampersands, PHP Sessions and Valid HTML"
     http://www.w3.org/QA/2005/04/php-session
- (and a few updates to QA Tips)

Discussions:
- (advocacy of) valid XML
      
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-evangelist/2005May/ 
thread.html#17
- XHTML10 vs HTML401
      
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-evangelist/2005May/ 
thread.html#2
- How to define elements in Markup Languages
     http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2005Jul/thread.html#6

(note: relatively little activity on the wiki for topics related to QA,  
with the exception of tools development)

Software releases:
- Link Checker 4.2
     http://www.w3.org/QA/2005/01/News2005#x20050428a
- Markup (HTML) Validator 0.7.0
     http://www.w3.org/QA/2005/01/News2005#x20050808a

Looking forward to seeing the results of your discussions on future  
work.
