             only outputclass change still needs to be done.

    3.  ITEM: Design cleanup issues:

        1.  Alternate bookmap numbering schemes (Poston)
            Paul P - Anyone need other numbering schemes? Little response on list.
            Please list numbering schemes you may need on the list.
            Bruce Esrig - We currently have 2 -- book number (label), part-number
            Paul proposes to allow more than one bookpartnumber
            Bruce -- Can we specialize so bookpartnumber contains elements, 
                not only CDATA?
            ACTION -- Bruce Esrig to pose suggestion on mailing list and we'll 
                discuss further next week.

    2.  Wrapup of bookmap content model discussions (front/back matter divs, 
        multi-appendexes, glossary)
        Robert: Sent out revised content models today.
        Robert moves to accept the changes as noted in this morning's email, 
        Scott Hudson seconds, no objections.
        DECISION -- Update bookmap content model as stated in Robert's email.

    3.  Renaming of data-subject to data-about (Esrig, Hennum)
        Bruce Esrig descirbed his comments: change the name of the 
            dita-subject element to dita-about.
        Robert - You can include reference to external object and assert that 
            this DITA element relates to that element.
        Bruce moves to rename the element. Erik seconds.
        DECISION -- Rename <data-subject> to <data-about>.

4.  Open

    Gershon noted the list discussion about outputclass usage and the name of
    the attribute not accurately reflecting its indended use.
    FUTURE FEATURE -- action for future release: rename outputclass to a 
    more meaningful name that reflects its purpose (role?)

Meeting adjourned at 8:40.
