Subject: Re: [chairs] [Fwd: OASIS Liaison Report to JTC 1/SC 34]


I've had a couple of questions about the topic area of SC34. I assumed 
that if your TC's work was related to SC34 that you would know this, but 
it's a fair question to ask :-)

A short summary is that SC34 works on SGML, HyTime, DSSSL, Topic
Maps, and schema languages.

Here's the description from the JTC1/SC34 web site at www.jtc1.org:

Standardization in the field of document structures, languages and 
related facilities for the description and processing of compound and 
hypermedia documents, including:
   -languages for describing document logical structures and their 
support facilities
   -languages for describing document-like objects in web environments
   -document processing architecture and formatting for logical documents
   -languages for describing interactive documents
   -multilingual font information interchange and related services
   -final-form document architecture and page information interchange
   -hypermedia document sturcutring language and application resources
   -API's for document processing
