Subject: Re: [tm-pubsubj-comment] Examples in Deliverable 1

* Steve Pepper
| As I understand from Lars Marius, the example is to contain *no

| ??? Lars Marius, please expand on what you understand by that.  That

| ...

We agreed in Montréal that the existing example was bad because it
made recommendations in addition to those made in the document
itself. I also made the point that doing a full example with syntax
etc would implicitly make recommendations about syntax, even though
Deliverable #1 itself does not do this, and I thought that was a bad
idea. At the time I thought people agreed with me, but they have
actually agreed with something else. :)
| Well. Under this cryptic sentence is the fact we discussed that
| people are likely to jump to examples without reading the prose ...
| but basically I thought we were still in agreement that XHTML and
| RDF syntaxes were relevant for examples, in insisting that they are
| not required nor even specifically recommended.
| Other views on that?

Well, I don't think RDF is any *more* relevant than XTM, nor any
less. I would use both in Deliverable #2, but neither in #1.

The examples already in Deliverable #1 seem to me sufficient as they
are. I don't think we need anything more, provided we explain them.
