Re: [Serial] I18N WG last call comments [6]


     In [1], you submitted the following comment on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization on behalf of the I18N 
working group:

[6] Section 3, 'encoding': Given that this is already required for
   the XML output method, we think it's highly desirable to make
   the requirement for support for UTF-8 and UTF-16 general
   (including text).

     Thanks to you and the I18N working group for this comment.

     The XSL and XML Query Working Groups discussed the working group's 
comment, and decided to accept the I18N working group's suggestion.  The 
serialization specification will be modified to require support for UTF-8 
and UTF-16 encodings for all the output methods defined by the 
specification - namely, the xml, xhtml, html and text output methods.

     As this is the change the I18N working group proposed, I believe the 
response should be acceptable to the working group.  May I ask you to 
confirm that it is?
