Subject: Re: DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 24 Sep 2003

| | The decision is yours to make, but before you finalize it I want to

| | The addition of attribute "language" neither satisfies my request [RFE
| | 798616] nor does it solve the problem I have in the scenario I
| | described.
| I guess we should consider this again. At the very least, I think the
| minutes need to clearly show that we understood the problem.

Actually, thinking about this some more, I begin to feel that the
right answer is to use the MIME content type to identify the, uh,
content type. That provides a standard way to express both language
and format. And it does so in a way that is broadly standardized.

So application/relaxng+xml is XML syntax, perhaps, and application/relaxng
is compact syntax. (I'm making those up, I don't know if there are MIME
types for RELAX NG off the top of my head.)

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com>      | Everything should be made as
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | simple as possible, but no simpler.
