ISSUE-144 (conforming-u): Call for revisions

From: Maciej Stachowiak <mjs@apple.com>
Date: Thu, 17 Feb 2011 03:14:04 -0800
Cc: "Kang-Hao (Kenny) Lu" <kennyluck@w3.org>, HTML WG <public-html@w3.org>
Message-id: <D42672E2-9B84-4079-90A3-5B40D5494CFB@apple.com>
To: Sam Ruby <rubys@intertwingly.net>

To be more clear on this, the chairs consider the proposal at <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/BIUArePresentational> to be out of scope for the issue. ISSUE-144 was solely about the <u> element, but this proposal includes changes to <b> and <i> as well.

We'll allow one week (until February, 24) for revisions or submission of a suitable change proposal. If there are still no suitable proposals at that point, we will move to close the issue without prejudice.
