Hi all,

I updated the "domain" examples for HTML5, so that the right values for
"meta" element "name" attribute are used, see

Now, this is from the Prague minutes:

"Yves: wanted to know how to map domains in HTML. The problem was the
format of the keywords in META. Currently we point to a node and expect a
string to map to it, but we don't have an internal syntax for the contents.
We need to specify this."

The issue is that for domainPointer we say:
"A required domainPointer attribute that contains a relative selector
pointing to a node that contains the domain information."
In case of DocBook, the domain info would look like this, from

 <article xmlns='http://docbook.org/ns/docbook'>


      <title>Example subjectset</title>

 <subjectset scheme="libraryofcongress">


 <subjectterm>Electronic Publishing</subjectterm>



          <subjectterm>SGML (Computer program language)</subjectterm>






A domain pointer could point to the "subjectterm" elements
<its:domainRule selector="/db:article/db:para"

This would give a list of strings.

With this HTML

<meta name="keywords" content="news, sports, politics, weather" />

We would have one string, which is a comma separated list of strings.

Yves, all, is the above the issue? I don't know a solution yet, just want
to be sure.
