Dear www-tag,

This is a summary of the TAG's activity since 4 April,
date of the previous summary [1].

The TAG had four teleconferences and one face-to-face meeting
during this period; summaries of those meetings are linked from
the TAG home page [2].

During the current period, the TAG has primarily:

   * Planned for the TAG update at the May 2002 AC meeting
     and WWW 2002. Slides from the TAG's WWW 2002 update
     available at: http://www.w3.org/2002/Talks/www2002-tag/

   * Published a finding on "Mapping between URIs and Internet
     Media Types" [3]. As the TAG reaches consensus about
     architectural principles, it will publish findings (linked
     from the findings page [4]). These findings will be
     become part of an Architectural Recommendation

   * Discussed the following issues:

     - When to use GET [5]? The TAG has focused on whether
       SOAP 1.2 is missing a method for safe operations. The TAG
       is making very good progress on this issue and is likely
       to publish a completed finding soon. The TAG will be
       communicating its findings to the XML Protocol WG.

     - Media-Types and W3C Specifications (issues w3cMediaType-1,
       customMediaType-2, and nsMediaType-3). The TAG is likely
       to publish a completed finding soon.

     - Guidelines for use of XML in IETF protocols (review of
       an IETF document on this topic). The TAG has engaged
       in active and effective discussion with the authors
       of this IETF document.

     - How to create a URI from a Qname (issue
       rdfmsQnameUriMapping-6 [9]). The TAG has not yet reached
       consensus on this issue.

     - What is the meaning of a document composed of content in
       mixed namespaces? What should a namespace document look
       like? (issues mixedNamespaceMeaning-13 [10] and
       namespaceDocument-8 [11]).

The TAG has made little progress on the Architecture Document
itself, in part due to lack of resources. The TAG will be working
on ways to improve the current situation.

Issues accepted by the TAG since the previous summary:

   * charmodReview-17 [7]: Request to review "Character Model for
           the Web 1.0" Last Call document. The TAG has agreed
           to review this document per request from the I18N WG.

   * qnameAsId-18 [8]: Is it ok to use Qnames as Identifiers?
