Subject: RE: [huml] Convergent Standards Paper

Hi Folks,

I added the Human Markup Language reference Ranjeeth mentioned and I 
changed the first sentence, making two sentences of it, to read:

"The Human Physical Characteristics Description Markup Language 
(HPCDML) is the deliverable workproduct of the HPCDML Subcommittee of 
the OASIS HumanMarkup Technical Committee. This language is aimed at 
bringing together a comprehensive, self-consistent, synthesis of 
existing and planned standards for documenting the Human Body in 
addition to providing the operational set of physical descriptions 
and descriptions of physical behavior required by applications using 
the Human Markup Language...."

I will repost a more complete version when I have added the public 
health datastandards Ranjeeth mentioned.

Note: It appears that this set of standards is ever-evolving, but I 
needed to make a start on it. Eventually, we will produce an RDF 
Schema that will encompass this work.
