Dear Simon Reinhardt and Al Gilman,

The VBWG discussed Simon's email [1] with Al comments [2] on
PLS 1.0 Candidate Recommendation [3] and we propose resolutions
for all the issue raised.

1. In section "1.5. Glossary of Terms", definition of URI

We accept Al's proposal and PLS 1.0 will align the definition
with WebArch spec [4].

>> <text>
>> Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
>> A global identifier in the context of the World Wide Web.
>> </text>
>> <code>
>> <dt><a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/#def-uri">Uniform Resource
>> Identifier (URI)</a></dt>
>> <dd><span class="content">A global identifier in the context of the
>> World Wide Web.</span></dd>
>> </code>

2. In section "2. Pronunciation Alphabets":

> Missing "," after "[X-SAMPA]"? Missing "the" before "SAMPA".


3. In section "3.1 Document Form":

>>> It is RECOMMENDED that the <lexicon> element also indicate the
>>> location of the PLS schema (see Appendix A) via the
>>> xsi:schemaLocation attribute from Section 2.6.3 of XML Schema
>>> Part 1: Structures Second Edition [XML-SCHEMA-1].
>> "indicates"?

[Al] No.  'indicate' is subjunctive here, and correct.

We agree with Al's reading and we rejected your request.

4. In section "4.5 <grapheme> Element":

>>> Traditional vs Modern spellings e.g. for example in German it is
>>> common to replace "" with "oe".

Thanks for the clarification about German spellings, we propose
the resolution to change the above text into.

Traditional vs Modern spellings e.g. for example in German it is
common to replace " " with "ss".

5. In section "4.7 <alias> Element":
>>> The <alias> element has an OPTIONAL prefer attribute analogous to
>>> the prefer attribute for the <phoneme> element; see Section 4.6
>>> for a normative description the prefer attribute.
> Missing "of" after "description".


6. In section "4.7 <alias> Element":

>>> <alias>a multiplexed information and computing service</alias>
> That's a description, not an acronym expansion. I suppose this is
> not the intended use of the element and therefore misleading.

Alias element allows to do acronym expansions or more flexible
substitutions, so we prefer to keep this example. The proposal is


Please indicate by email whether you are satisfied
with the VBWG's resolutions, whether you think there
is need for further clarifications, or whether you
wish to register an objections. If we don't see
a reply to this email by 31 May 2008, we will consider
the resolutions implicitly accepted.

Many thanks for your helpful contribution,

Paolo Baggia, editor PLS specification.
