Why implement this functionality on manifest file, and why let it be linked to any MIME type content ?Because the author should be able to indicate a preferred view. Think of the following use case. If I wanted to develop a presentation as a kind of digital brochure for my company, I would probably want the presentation to immediately start upon opening the file. The preferred view would allow me to specify this type of behavior by allowing me (as the author) to put in a preferred-view-mode with a value of "presentation-auto-start". In another instance, I may be writing an ebook. I could have a preferred-view-mode of readonly so that the ebook isnt editable by default. This is a generic method to allow the author to specify what the view for the whole document is. It doesn't only apply to part of a document.
email@example.com" type="cite">Let me change the term used: "it may be used to run malicious MIME type referenced content (as scripts)".I'm worried because the implementation on that item, really reminds me the OnOpen() handler that was used on MsOffice to run malicious code (or to run or call arbitrary content when the document is open - i.e. Melissa virus used that functionality).This attribute is meant to only take certain values. I don't see any security implication in this schema considering that it doesn't allow execution of arbitrary code.
firstname.lastname@example.org" type="cite">JomarCan we limit this proposed "manifest:preferred-view-mode" only to presentation files, or manage a way to insert this tag inside the header of presentation files ?I don't think that would make sense as there are uses for the preferred view mode in each of the different document types. wt --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe from this mail list, you must leave the OASIS TC that generates this mail.
