Now that we've approved the minutes, Norm will make the next steps happen.

|     b.  The Java language has added java annotations, and Norm
|         wondered how these would be marked up in a synopsis.
|         The C# language also has annotations, Jirka pointed out.
|         ACTION: Norm to investigate this issue some more.


|     c.  Nancy to email info on XML address standard xNAL.

Completed. [4]

|         MathML and SVG support in DocBook 5.

Completed; working with Norm to get it published

|     e.  Norm to write up a description of how authors
|         should handle elements that have been dropped.


|     f.  Norm to fix equation content model in 5.0.


|     g.  Bob to post a list of default attributes in 4.x.


| 6.  Default attribute values in DocBook 5.

Continued until Bob is present.

|     Other DocBook 5 issues.

See issues below.

Proposed: Publish DocBook 5.0b2 when these changes have been made.

| 7.  DocBook and DITA interoperability session at 
|     OASIS Symposium 2006, 9-12 May 2006, San Francisco. [3]

DocBook and DITA TCs will demonstrate interoperability. More news when
the schedule is published. Proposals were due yesterday and we did get
them in on time, I believe.

| 8. Review of Requests for Enhancement
|     To browse a specific RFE, enter the URL (on one line):

|       group_id=21935&atid=384107&aid=XXXX
|       1306027  Support for annotations in synopsis elements


|       1358844  allow multiple imageobject in imageobjectco

There's some concern about whether the coordinates could really be
expected to be the same.

Norm: They're CALSPair coordinates which are percentages so it might

Larry: If the coordinates are really reusable, it doesn't look like a
bad idea.

ACTION: Norm to investigate the submitter's example.

|       1380477  Allow area to inherit from areaset

See norm's message:

Larry: seems reasonable; how do you handle an areaset with an id and one
of its children with an id. The child could have seperate linking.
