1. Roll call
2. Accepting the minutes[1] of the previous meeting
3. Next meeting: 21 July 2004.
4. Review of the agenda.
5. Review of open action items

    a. Mike to provide a better proposal for choicelist markup.
    b. Mike to reconsider the annotation problem and post his thoughts.
    c. Norm to publish flattened version of the 4.3 XML DTD.
    d. Norm to produce a draft spec of 5.0.
    e. Norm to ask Karl about creating stable OASIS URIs.
    f. Dick to determine if RFE 541444 "caption in 
       mediaobjectco" is closed.
    g. Larry to look into section 508 accessibility issues
       with DocBook elements.
    h. Norm to contact Dave Pawson about accessibility issues.
    i. Adam to ask the submitter for more information.
       about 950206 Nested bibliodivs
    j. Norm to create official releases for Simplified DocBook 1.1,
       MathML, and others that are dependent on DocBook 4.3.

6. DTD version 4.4 beta
7. html:form should be available in more places
   than in %divcomponent.mix;  [2] [3]

8.  SGML 4.3 tweaks

    Two complaints against SGML DTD 4.3. [4]

9. floatstyle attribute status:

   In November 2002 we voted to add a new floatstyle CDATA
   attribute to the four formal elements. [5]
   In September 2003 we confirmed that floatstyle should be
   added to the four formal elements in 4.3. [6]
   In October 2003 we voted to abandon the new floatstyle
   attribute on formal items, add a float attribute to
   example, equation, and table with CDATA type #IMPLIED,
   and change the float attribute on figure to CDATA leaving
   the default value of 0 for now and changing it to #IMPLIED
   in 5.0.  [7]
   But floatstyle got into 4.3 on the four formal elements,
   so should this be revisited yet again?

10. Request for canonical URIs for Docbook DTDs. [8]
    (carried forward from last month)

11. RFE 955428: Add wordsize effectivity attribute

    Sun and HP have found a need for a separate effectivity
    attribute to indicate computer processor word size.
    Most felt this was within the docbook domain, but there
    was concern about adding yet another global attribute,
    and if it was too specialized.  There was also a desire
    for a better name.

12. alt text for accessibility.

    Reports from action items?
