Subject: Re: Revival of the SBSC work, and a proposed home for the UBL customization work

Just to clear up any confusion, I am speaking 
here of moving the customization work into the 
Small Business Subcommittee (SBSC):


and not into the Human Interface Subcommittee (HISC):


BUT!  We could use help in HISC, too, since the 
HISC work will be based on the SBSC work.  So 
don't be shy to join up with us HISC 
folks!  We'll be working on specifications for 
the input and output of instances of UBL.

And, to clear up further confusion about HISC, 
the HISC does *not* need stylesheet experience on 
the committee ... we aren't writing stylesheets, 
we are writing specifications so that those who 
want to implement stylesheets or forms can do so 
without having to learn all of UBL.

Please let me know (off list) if you have any 
questions, unless of course you think the 
questions might be of interest to other members.
