Subject: Re: [dita] Fwd: New design for OASIS Committee Notes

Hi Kris,

Calibri remains as the body font for the new CN design. This is a Microsoft font, licensed for use with Windows but problematic for publishing on other operating systems. Is there an opportunity to push back here?

(BTW, I got a bounce-back message from the DITA TC list yesterday for this message. Apologies if you're receiving it twice).

Hi folks,Â

After reviewing possible designs for a new Committee Note with the TAB and several interested members, we have settled on the attached. This eliminates the fat blue bar that took up the so much real estate on the first page and the header that reminded you, page after page, that THIS ISN'T STANDARDS TRACK! Oye vey.Â

Instead, it uses a label, just under the OASIS logo, to identify this as a Committee Note and it states in the Status section that the patent provisions of the OASIS process don't apply. It is cleaner, matches our new color scheme, and makes Committee Notes less like ugly step children.Â

Ken, Kris, Dave, let us know what information you want regarding colors, etc. Paul, let's go ahead and update the cover page template when you get a chance.Â
