Hello SMIL people,

during AmbulantPlayer 2.2b17 beta testing a community member found a 
we think could be caused by an omission in the SMIL3.0 DTD.

De file: 
will not be parsed by AmbulantPlayer when a validating XML parser 
(xerces) is used.

the (normative) text  states:

"This profile adds the meta 
and metadata 
elements to the content model of all elements except meta 
and state 

This text is consistent with the test file mentioned above, where the 
<meta/> element is used as
child of a <text/> element, and the (informative) summary of changes 
given at:

But these texts are inconsistent with the DTD in 
and the (normative) table presented at 

Please let us know what the definitive status is of the <meta/> element 
as a child from an element in the <body/> of
a SMIL 3.0 document.

Yours sincerely,

Kees Blom.
