Acceptance of Minutes from Last Call
The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes from the last
work call

Action Items
Michael, David: work on settings interop/spec - ongoing
Lars: mimetype-registration - posted new version to list

Topics Discussed
It was unclear whether Macintosh file type codes should be included in 
the registration. Since these are no longer officially supported by 
Apple, it was decided to proceed with the registration.

SC Minutes:
The minutes for the first formula SC meeting are now available on the 
SC's mailing list
In the future, SC minutes will be CC'ed to the TC list to make it easier 
for all TC members to track progress of the SCs

Table cell templates:
a) ref paragraph style directly from cell element
b) ref para style from cell style
c) new template style family
for now, we will recommend option (a) to the TC coordination call, since 
this is most consistent with the current specification and only adds a 
new attribute to the cell template element.
If the style system is to be reevaluated for a future version, it should 
be taken into consideration to find a more elegant solution for this issue.

Style name uniquness.
A style currently is uniquely identified by its family and its name. It 
would be easier for implementors, if there was a single information 
item, by which a style can be identified within a document.
Requiring uniqueness of style:name might render existing documents 
invalid and applications assuming uniqueness will get problems when 
reading files that don't assure uniqueness of style names.
Florian proposed to at least establish something like a 'best practice' 
to use unique style name in order to ease implementation.

Style ordering:
The order in which styles are defined is not relevant. Is legal for a 
style to reference a parent style that has not been defined when the 
style is read, as long as the parent style is defined in the document.

New Action Items
Lars: send mimetype registration to IANA

Next conference call
TC coordination call: 2006-03-20 4PM GMT – 5:00PM GMT
TC work call: 2006-03-27 4PM GMT – 5:00PM GMT
