Elliott:

It is my goal to drive the XHTML-Print project to a very quick closure.  Since
the work has been going on for some time and has been actively reviewed by the
uPnP group and others, I see no reason to have this continue for very long.  For
example, I have no plans to ever have a face2face specifically for XHTML-Print.
Perhaps the problem some people are having are with the dates.  They were very
conservative and reflect the totality of a conservative PWG process that extends
beyond the "Draft Standard" stage which we would all implement (called out as 2Q
2001) to the "Standard" stage which comes after implementation experience and
perhaps a "PrintFest" (can't call it a Bake*ff after all!)

I truly expect this effort to conclude in the very near future whether it is
owned by the PWG or somewhere else.  The advantage of the PWG owning it long
term is that it provides a home for the documentation, the DTDs and for a long
term process allowing the standard to evolve as the industry gains experience
with it.

Don,

We won't be at the plenary (although Norbert will be in Tampa for the UPDF
meeting) so here is our two cents.

PWG seems like the right home for XHTML-Print.  We like the work you've
done and hope it becomes final soon.   I wonder what impact this will have
on the timing within the UPnP group.  Since the plan there has been to
finalize this soon, would that vote go ahead?  What happens if the PWG
process makes changes afterwards?  Perhaps PWG should vote on adopting the
UPnP result lock stock and barrel, or else UPnP should just turn it over
right away.

Also, I assume a goal is to do this in a way that the Bluetooth folks can
adopt it as well...true?

A working group to develop the XHTML-Print "datastream" is being proposed
for
the PWG.  I have included a pointer to a proposed charter which will be
discussed at the PWG Plenary in Tampa.

Comments should be sent to me or brought up at the Plenary in Tampa.  A
mailing
list for this project has not yet been set up yet.
