• W3C Workshop Updates
	• No further updates, still waiting for W3C to post results
	• >50 position papers were submitted
• Anne Price: promotion of participation in W3C Workshop
	• Good to have slides/white papers on the topics that can be marketed
• Adobe expressed concerns of how widely IPP is implemented or how relevant the PWG is?
	• IPP is implemented in nearly all network printers (exceptions are some extremely low cost printers and some label printers)
	• Adobe (Rick Cabenier) wants JDF
	• But PWG mapping is useful work
		• but need to make sure they understand the current mapping is one-way
• Slide deck:
	• Mike: put together overview of CSS Print and proposed CSS/XSL job ticket properties
		• Make sure to include specific job ticket references
		• Choice of properties is based on IPP Everywhere/PWG PJT that are widely recognized by printers
			• IPP Everywhere specifically targeted at mobile/driverless
		• Mention known issues:
			• CSS3 Page Media Module
			• THEAD, "position: fixed" support
	• Bill: put together overview of semantic model
		• Mention one-way mapping, but there is some prototyping with OpenPrinting Job Ticket API
		• Mention IPP as the standard binding that is part of almost all network printers
			• Also Printer MIB
	• Paul:
		• Work with Anne to put together press release and possibly a white paper expanding on our W3C position paper
		• Also working on 3D Printing materials
		• Interview from Michael Laurent at PrinterOn
	• Does the PWG want to participate?
		• Yes, either officially (liaison) or by individual members participating on both sides
	• What are we willing to work on?
		• CSS Print update: yes
		• XSL/XSL-FO extensions: yes
		• CSS3 Page Media Module: maybe?
