RE: [PLS1.0] i18n comment: Point to IPA picker

It is interesting that you call this software, since it is just an XHTML
page with some JavaScript, and it doesn't interface with external content or
file systems (you have to cut & paste the text elsewhere).  As such, I saw
it simply as a slightly more interactive version of the two pages you
currently point to.
I will be happy with whatever decision you feel is right.  In any
eventuality, I think it will be useful to add it to the VB public home page,
and perhaps, the SSML page. Please let me know when you do.

Issue R103-15

Proposed Classification: Clarification / Typo / Editorial 

Resolution: Reject

We asked Ian Jacobs, the Comm Team head, about the reference to software
from a recommendation track specification. 

He replied: 

Link to software from the group's public home page, not from the spec.
Links to software from specs are likely to become outdated rapidly. 
On the basis of this comment, we decided to reject your request and
instead add a link to the IPA Character Picker tool in the Voice Browser

Please indicate whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution,
whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish
to register an objection.

Paolo Baggia, editor PLS spec.

In addition to IPAUNICODE1 and IPAUNICODE2, please point to the 
IPA Character Picker
[]. This was recently
updated against the information on the IPA homepage, and allows people
to easily create short strings of IPA text for insertion into their
documents. (And will probably also be useful for creating this spec.)
