Dear www-tag,

This is a summary of the TAG's activity from 10 May 2002
(date of the previous summary [1]) to 9 June 2002.

of those meetings are linked from the TAG home page [2].

During the current period, the TAG has primarily:

1) Published the following completed findings:

  - "Internet Media Type registration, consistency of use":


  Internet Media Types are an important part of the Web
  architecture. This finding discusses three aspects of Internet
  Media Types: registration by W3C Working Groups, consistency
  between Internet Media Type and content, and consistency in
  the communication of character encoding information.

2) Discussed the following draft findings:

  -Qnames as Identifiers (issue qnameAsId-18)

  -URIs, Addressability, and the use of GET (issue whenToUseGet-7)

3) Accepted the following new issues:

  -formattingProperties-19: Reuse existing formatting
   properties/names, coordinate new ones

  -errorHandling-20 : What should specifications say about
		      error handling?

  - RFC3023Charset-21 : Do all "shoulds" of RFC 3023 section
		       7.1 apply?

4) Reached a decision on the following issues:

  - w3cMediaType-1,customMediaType-2: Resolved by finding
   "Internet Media Type registration, consistency of use."

  - charmodReview-17: The TAG resolved which comments to
    send to the I18N WG; the final form of the comments is not
    yet available, but is described in the minutes of the 3
    June teleconference:

  The TAG has made some progress on the Architecture Document
  and is expecting more resources from W3M for that part of
  their work.
