Announcement of the NVDL FCD

Dear colleagues,

Let me announce the final committee draft of Namespace-based
Validation Dispatching Language (ISO/IEC FCD 19757-4).  NVDL is a
language for dividing a multi-namespace document into single-namespace
fragments and then invoke validators for these fragments.  The main
target of this language is a composite XML document that combines
multiple formats, such as XHTML, SVG, SMIL and XForms.

This language has several ancestors: RELAX Namespace (JIS TR and
ISO/IEC DTR), Modular Namespaces (James Clark), Namespace Switchboard
(Rick Jelliffe), and Namespace Routing Language (James Clark).  NRL 
is the closest ancestor.

ISO/IEC FCD 19757-4 is available at:

Here are some pointers to talks about NVDL.
