Hi Laura,

The documents published on the W3C site are the authorative source for
W3C standards including SRGS, SSML, VoiceXML and so on. Books, articles,
etc on these specfications are not authorative, they are personal
opinons expressed by the author. 

In this particular case, Bob Edgar is clearly wrong with respect to the
current Last Call Working Draft published April 2002: inline SRGS XML
grammars are permitted. It should be noted that Edgar's book was
published in early 2001 and cannot possibly reflect the current state of
the specification.

My advice would be to trust the W3C specifications and be sceptical of
any other publications about them!

Hope this helps

Scott

Hi!
I am doing a research on VoiceXML and other XML-based languages for the 
Speech Framework. When reading about SRGF, following doubt came up: can
you 
declare XML-SRGF Grammars inline, embedded in a VoiceXML Document? I
have 
been reading the VoiceXML 2.0 Specification and there is an example of
an 
embedded XML- Speech Recognition Grammar (3.1.1.1. Inline Grammars).
However 
Bod Edgar states in his book "The VoiceXML Handbook" that Grammars in
the XML 
Form can only be declared in separated files.
Can anybody please bring some light to this mess?
Thanks!
