Subject: Re: [dita] Groups - Suggested updates for 1.0 specification (suggestedUpdates.html) uploaded

Hi Chris,

You're right that the file is catalog-dita.xml, not catalog.xml. In the
copy I got from here:
inside the dtd.zip package, the file catalog-dita.xml contains this line:
  <public publicId="-//OASIS//ENTITIES DITA Topic Class//EN"
The file included with that package is actually topicAttr.mod. The
architecture spec says topicAttr.mod is correct.

For the ut-d-simpletable entity - Don says that when he applied the OASIS
changes, he started with dita132 files in which he forgot he had been
toying with a specialization.  He says that's why I've got the DTD job now.

Thanks for the hilightDomain correction.

For Property - any suggestions? My primary reason for the change was so
that a user reading through the DTD would not expect it to be a
phrase-level element. If we don't want to include the presentation info, we
can leave it as Property.

Thanks for the programmingDomain correction.

Since posting the list, I have found one other comment problem. The
topic.mod file says that it contains declarations "..for the Programming
Domain." This should be updated to "...for the base Topic type."

                                       updates for 1.0 specification       
                                       (suggestedUpdates.html)   uploaded  

I agree with just about all the suggested updates.

Comments on the suggested updates:
      mentions a typo in "catalog.xml". Is there such a file? The closest I
      see is catalog-dita.xml, and it does not have the typo in question.
      remove entity declaration for "ut-d-simpletable" from
      utilitiesDomain.ent: could you give some background?
      hilightDomain.mod: typo, I think. Should be "highlightDomain.mod".
      <property> in reference.mod should be described as "Property Row",
      not "Property". Maybe we could have a better name? The suggested long
      name seems to mix presentation with semantic.
      "sepcialization" typo in topic.mod: programmingDomain.mod also has
      the same typo.
Sorry for the late notice.
