PWG-ANNOUNCE> Charter for XHTML-Print Working Group

As the Chairperson of the UPNP Imaging committee I am against starting a
separate working group to develop X-HTML Print.  We are very close to
locking down the BasicPrint Service which requires X-HTML Print and I had
envisioned locking down the X-HTML Print document in parallel.   It seems
that we are winding down the X-HTML Print discussions and are close to
agreement on a version of X-HTML Print that vendors could implement.  In
fact, the current UPNP Print Committee schedule has the X-HTML Print
document listed as "done" by 3/31/01 with a subsequent vote to agree on the
"final" version.   I have concerns that a separate working committee to
develop X-HTML Print could prolong the entire process for a UPNP Print
standard.       

Regards,

Shivaun Albright
