Discussion of Work Package 6 Graphical Content
The TC continued the discussion whether graphical content could be 
represented using SVG directly rather than in an own schema that is 
close to SVG only:

- The TC discussed whether SVG supports user defined style sheets in 
addition to CSS and direct properties. This would make it possible to 
use the Open Office Format style scheme within SVG. Daniel Vogelheim 
will clarify this.

- The TC identified the following areas as being problamatic for using 
SVG directly:
    - styles (see above),
    - 3D-objects,
    - text and text formatting contained within graphical objects.
Daniel Vogelheim emphasized the importance of text, because even in 
presentations most content is text that is contained within graphical 

- The TC discussed whether it is possible to use SVG directly, but to 
only add elements additional and attributes to the SVG namespace. To 
check this, it is required to compare the elements from the 
OpenOffice.org format with the ones of SVG. Daniel Vogelheim and Michael 
Brauer will prepare this comparison.

- The TC unanimously agreed to support David Faure's proposal for 
follow-up text boxes on next pages 
(http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200304/msg00028.html) in 
the Open Office XML format.

The next TC meeting will be chaired by Daniel Vogelheim.

New Action Items
- Daniel Vogelheim: Clarify whether SVG supports user defined style 
sheets in addition to CSS and direct properties
- Daniel Vogelheim, Michael Brauer: Prepare comparison between 
OpenOffice.org's elements for graphical content and SVG
