There have been a number of Test Suite updates over the last two days
that affect approved and unapproved TCs:


We had not been testing for the "first" reserved word in @rel/@rev. TCs
77 and 87 have been updated to include a test for the reserved word.
These tests are effectively our "reserved words" tests, so they should
have included "first" and not having it in there was an oversight that
has been corrected. If somebody could double-check that those tests are
still valid, and that I didn't mess anything up, that would be great.


TC115 had two issues. The first was an issue that would occur on
SAX-based processors that did not have access to the raw byte stream and
thus wouldn't be able to tell if the encoded "<strong>" value should be
interpreted as an XML Literal or not. The checking logs contain a bit
more information about the change:


TC 158 was merged with TC 164. TCs 147, 160, 162 and 164 were approved:


TC 142 and TC 154 have been moved to "On Hold" status. We need to
discuss an implementation issue with TC 142. LibXML (which has very
broad distribution - it's the Gnome projects XML library) currently has
a bug where it won't pass the xmlns:xml prefix to the RDFa processor.
This is an issue in Gregg Kellogg's Ruby RDFa parser and will certainly
be an issue in other parsers that use LibXML... we need to have somebody
contact that community and find out why they're not passing xmlns:xml,
and if it is a bug, ask them to correct the issue. TC 154 contains an
invalid XML character per XML 4th edition rules. We need to decide how
this will affect the graph that is generated and produce some errata
text to formalize the behavior.
