I think we all want the spec to get out quickly.

What is still unclear to me is what alternative you prefer to have it
published by the PWG.

Is it to publish the XHTML spec as one of the UPnP documents?

If so, it not yet clear to me how open the UPnP specs are going to be once
they are published, e.g. can anybody get hold of them and can they be
referenced by other standards groups, and who will take on any maintenance
of the spec once it is finished?

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

Comments should be sent to me or brought up at the Plenary in Tampa.  A
