The XML Core WG requests transition of 
  XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 (Second Edition)
available at
to a Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER).  

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only 
version of the specification as of 22 September 2006,
dated to reflect the expected publication date of
3 October 2006 and designed to be published by having
the directory moved over to
in its entirety.

The XInclude 1.0 First Edition was published on 20 December 2004 
at http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xinclude-20041220/
as a Recommendation.  All changes to the document
are recorded in the XInclude Errata document at
http://www.w3.org/2004/12/xinclude-errata .
A diff-marked review copy of this PER is available at

The WG's decision to request publication as a PER was taken 
during a WG telcon on 2006 Sept 6 whose minutes may be found at


Depending on the scheduling of the PER call, we propose a 
publication date of 3 October 2006.

We propose that the PER period lasts from the date of publication
until 3 November 2006.  



This document specifies a processing model and syntax 
for general purpose inclusion. Inclusion is accomplished 
by merging a number of XML information sets into a single 
composite infoset. Specification of the XML documents 
(infosets) to be merged and control over the merging 
process is expressed in XML-friendly syntax (elements, 
attributes, URI references).
