Unique Ids for chart and control types
The TC unanimously agreed to use namespaced attribute values as 
identifiers for chart and control types as suggested in 
The namespace URL's used in the identifiers should link to a 
specification document that includes a specification of the chart or 
control type that is declared by the identifier.

Font inclusion
The TC continued the discussion about including fonts in OASIS Open 
Office documents. As part of his action item, Michael Brauer reported 
that at least TrueType fonts specify whether it is permitted to embed 
them in documents (see 
http://www.agfamonotype.com/software/embedding.asp) and that SVG fonts 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/fonts.html#SVGFontsOverview) are designed 
for displaying document only, but don't support editing.  However CSS2's 
@font-face declaration, that has also been adopted by SVG, can be used 
to describe many details of a font to support applications in choosing a 
font that best matches the font originally used. The CSS2 @font-face 
declaration especially supports specifying the URI of a downloadable 
version of the font. This could also be used to specify the location of 
a font include in an OASIS Open Office XML document.

Michael Brauer will create a proposal for including CSS2's @font-face 
into the OASIS Open Office specification.

Discussion of Work Package 5.2 Style Basics
The TC discussed the purpose of the <style:default-style> element, that 
is, specifying defaults for formatting properties that were used by the 
application that created a document and do not have a reasonable 
default. Examples for this are font names or heights.

The TC also discussed the <style:map> element that is used to establish 
different formatting properties depending on the context of a certain 
paragraph. With the help of this element, for instance one and the same 
paragraph style might specify different formatting properties than used 
in a table or used outside a table. The TC especially discussed whether 
the formatting properties in place can be determined without evaluating 
the context in which the paragraph is used. Daniel Vogelheim will 
clarify the usage of the <style:map> element on the list.

The TC agreed to continue the discussion of formatting properties in the 
same way elements and attributes have been discussed. That is, certain 
groups of formatting properties, like text or paragraph properties, will 
be discussed as a whole and individual properties will be discussed if 
requested by a TC member.

New Action Items
- Michael Brauer: Proposal for including CSS2's @font-face into the 
OASIS Open Office specification.
- Daniel Vogelheim: Clarify the usage of the <style:map> element.
