Re: Updates to XHTMLMIME document

Greetings Shane, I think that what you have written in Appendix A [1] is a 
good start. How about that for damning with faint praise!

I believe that we should consider at least two content authoring 
scenarios. The first, which is what Appendix A is aimed at, is someone 
writing a document. The second that I believe that we should look at is 
where an author creates a "fragment" that may need to be incorporated into 
a containing document. How should such content be authored such that it 
can be included into different types of document, particularly HTML4 and 
XHTML and probably HTML5.

Updates to XHTMLMIME document

I have started the process of updating the XHTMLMIME document as per my 
action and discussions with Roland, Steven, and Tina.  You can see the 
update via the drafts page ( but 
remember that it is a work in progress.  I welcome any input, but 
especially over the next couple of days.  I plan to lock this down late 
Monday so we can review and decide how to proceed on Wednesday during 
our regular meeting.
