Subject: Re: [dita] 60-day Review Request for Darwin Information Typing Architecture(DITA) Version 1.2

See comments in <kje> tags below. I'll upload an revised CD 03 ZIP in the morning, after I double check the content.

I am traveling and can be best reached at my cell phone (919-622-1501) rather than my office phone for the next week or so.

Best regards,

  It appears that we've lost the links to the schema/dtd packages on the cover page; the previous iteration had underneath the supercedes section the related to section which listed the URIs for DTDs and Schemas (and needs to point to the current ones rather than the 1.1 versions):

This specification replaces or supercedes:
OASIS DITA Version 1.1 Architectural Specification (http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.1/archspec/archspec.html)
OASIS DITA Version 1.1 Language Specification (http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.1/langspec/ditaref-type.html)

This specification is related to:

<kje>I updated the "Related Work" section for  XHTML, CHM, and PDF cover pages to include links to the 1.2 version of the DTDs and XDS. FYI: We are using HTML files as the source for the cover pages for this committee draft.</kje>

In the HTML version, the previous link from Introduction goes to something called 'publication variables' rather than the cover page; although that page still has the DTDs/schemas shown but also the namespace and no TOC. It should link to the previous page in full. (apologies if I didn't catch that before?)

<kje>Thank you for catching this. I've corrected this.</kje>

In the DITA version, the related DTDs/Schemas are the 1.1 versions rather than the 1.2 but the namespace hasn't been removed. It also has the wrong URIs in both the this version and latest version, so I'm thinking that this wasn't the source used for the generation of the PDF and HTML. Is it possible that the wrong set of files were uploaded?
<kje>We are not using DITA files to generate the current cover pages. We are using the following XHTML files to generate cover pages:
  • DITA1.2-spec.html
  • DITA1.2-spec-chm.html
  • DITA1.2-spec-pdf.html
I previously had included these files in the source ZIP, but then I removed them at your request. Do you want them in the source ZIP? (I'm adding them back; let me know if you want me to remove then.)</kje>

In the CHM version, the same problem with the URIs for this/latest versions, missing DTD/Schema links and the publication variables page.

<kje>I've corrected this and regenerated the CHM.</kje>

I don't know if it's possible to just regenerate the front matter and replace those bits ...
