Subject: FW: [chairs] TC Process Specification Requirements notice

This may be old news at this point but I wanted to make sure everyone
was aware of the policy change that now allows for HTML submissions when

Also note that the conformance clause and statement of use items will
apply to some of the documents the SSTC currently has in progress.

-----Original Message-----
From: Mary McRae [mailto:mary.mcrae@oasis-open.org] 

To all TC Chairs and Editors:

On 22 June the OASIS Board of Directors approved an immediate change to
Section 2.18 of the TC Process Policy [1]
regarding the requirement for XHTML. This requirement has been relaxed
to once again permit submission of HTML or XHTML.
Please note that while OpenOffice and other Open Document Format
implementations can save as valid XHTML, the output is
not styled properly and therefore not acceptable. Microsoft Office does
not have an XHTML export at this time. Any TCs
authoring in DITA or DocBook should continue to produce valid (and
properly-formatted) XHTML, as should any TCs
authoring directly in XHTML. 

Also, please remember that the conformance clause requirement went into
effect 1 June. All documents submitted for
Public Review or Committee Specification Ballot must have a separate
Conformance Clause section and all Statements of
Use must refer to that section.

"(dd) "Statement of Use", with respect to a specification, is a written
statement by an OASIS Organizational Member
stating that it is successfully using or implementing that specification
in accordance with the conformance clauses
specified in Section 2.18, and stating whether its use included the
interoperation of multiple independent
implementations. "

"A specification that is approved by the TC at the Public Review Draft,
Committee Specification or OASIS Standard level
must include a separate section, listing a set of numbered conformance
clauses, to which any implementation of the
specification must adhere in order to claim conformance to the
specification (or any optional portion thereof)." 

As always, please feel free to contact me (or your TC Staff Contact)
with any questions or requests for assistance.
