ACTION-172 in the HTML WG is due this Thu Feb 18 and I believe it is awaiting input from the TAG via ACTION-388.

Can the TAG participants working on TAG ACTION-388 give us some idea when you are going to complete this work so that we can make progress on ACTION-172 in the HTML WG?

"documents" don't handle things, "processors" do.
There are XML processors and HTML5 processors.

I'm proposing to leave HTML5 processors exactly
as they are specified, not changing them one
teeny bit.

I'd like to allow *some* use cases of *some*
XML processors that use Public Identifiers and
System identifiers to define subsets they're
willing to process, and use the pubid and sysid
to identify those subsets.

Make sense?
