Re: [Serial] I18N WG last call comments [11] (qt-2004Feb0362-08)


     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:

[11] Section 3, 'include-content-type': Why is this parameter needed?
   It seems that it may be better to always include a <meta> element.
   Please remove the parameter or tell us when/why it's necessary to
   not have a <meta> element

     Thanks to you and the working group for this comment.  The XSL and 
XML Query Working Groups discussed the comment, and noted that there are 
many situations in which users have found there to be a need for the 
include-content-type parameter.  A user might not want the serialization 
process to produce a META element because some post-processing phase will 
be responsible for creating that element or because the sequence that is 
input to serialization already contains such a META element that the user 
would like the serialization process to preserve.  Users sometimes find it 
necessary to do this in order to work around bugs in web server software.

     The working group decided that no change to the Serialization draft 
was necessary.

     May I ask you to confirm that this response is acceptable to the I18N 
Working Group?
