Subject: RE: [dita] Fwd: [dita-adoption] FW: Possibly final draft: Math Specializations in DITA 1.3

I reviewed it and sent some comments (just now) directly to Autumn. My comments were essentially all basic editorial, except for one question I wanted to raise here. There are obviously numerous references to the DITA 1.3 spec, but this one made me uneasy, I think because it includes a direct quotation from the spec content:


The DITA 1.3 specification allows for some flexibility on the part of the DITA processor, as it should. The only guidance it provides is with the statement, “common practice is to present the equation number to the right (in left-to-right reading order) of the equation, centered vertically within the vertical extent of the block equation.” When DITA processors provide support for equation numbering, hopefully content architects will be given wiggle room to customize how the equation number is generated and formatted.


Is it a Bad Idea to quote directly, given that the spec technically will not exist yet for quite a few months? Or am I worrying unnecessarily?

TC members, have you had an opportunity to review this whitepaper?

JoAnn, I think you might want to get and handle any comments from the DITA TC before asking the DITA Adoption TC to approve the final paper.
