Subject: Re: DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 16 January 2008

/ Dave Pawson <davep@dpawson.co.uk> was heard to say:
|>what I meant to say was:
|> <para revisionflag="changed">
|> <phrase revisionflag="changed">Right. I</phrase> think you
|> <phrase revisionflag="added">already have the tools you</phrase>
|> need <phrase revisionflag="deleted">tools</phrase>
|> to do that<phrase revisionflag="changed">!</phrase></para>
| IMHO that is grossly OTT Norm?
| <ins>Right I</ins> think you <ins>already have the tools you</ins>
| need <del>tools</del> to do that <ins>!</ins>
| Seems
| a) More semantically correct

Semantically equivalent, I think. In fact, the existing semantics are
richer since you can shortcut ins/del with changed :-)

| b) Far less typing?


| Is 'changed' an insert or a delete?

It's neither. Or both. It just means that the content has changed.

If your real concern is the amount of markup, I think I'd be inclined to
follow Keith's lead and invent your own local customization. Then translate
that into "proper" revisionflag markup.

                                        Be seeing you,
