Status and open actions

There will be a TPAC meeting in Lyon, France in October/November:

We should consider whether we want to have a WG f2f there.

xml-stylesheet and HTML5
Hnery took an action to file a bug about xml-stylesheet
handling.  Done:

Henry has done a lot more testing and filing of results to date.
Henry's tests are at
You need to look at the README and README2 files there.

The CSS2 spec says something about styling XML with CSS.
Henry also notes http://www.w3.org/Style/styling-XML.en.html.

ACTION to Henry: File a bug against the HTML5 spec saying that
it should support styling XML with CSS.

issues with the Polyglot draft:  BOM
Henry sent email with various potential issues at

We discussed the point about the spec recommending [P1] the use of
the UTF-8 BOM.

[P1] http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/#character-encoding

Henry thinks we converged on this in email on Wednesday 11 January:

ACTION: Henry to file an issue against Polyglot about the BOM.

issues with the Polyglot draft:  xml:space and xml:base
See the minutes at
for the discussion.

ACTION: Henry to draft an issue regarding xml:space and xml:base in
the Polyglot draft for WG review.

XInclude 1.1
On 2012 February 14, we published
XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases
summarizing the requirements and use cases for possible
enhancements to XInclude addressing the issues:

* @xpointer when parse="text"
* copying attributes from the xinclude element to the root
  included element

Before producing an XInclude 1.1, we will need an amended
charter as indicated by Ian at

We will wait to see what if any feedback we get from the
published requirements and use cases and then, if we want
to go ahead with an XInclude 1.1, we should look into amending
our charter.

Norm has posted something to the DocBook TC:

ACTION to Norm:  Continue to publicize the XInclude 1.1
Requirement and Use Cases WG Note to potentially interested
parties and see if you can drum up any feedback.

XML Model
Jirka reminded us that ISO published XML Model as an international
standard.  One can buy it at

He said that the process is in order to try to allow the ISO version
to be published for free.

We will wait to see if it becomes freely available and then update
our note to reference it.

ACTION to Jirka:  Check with the ISO working group about the
status of making the ISO version free.
