Sorry, I cannot read the minutes on this borrowed machine, so I may be missing some of the details of the dicussion. But:

1. Highlighted areas generally relate to last call comments related changes that have not been specificaly agreed to in context by the group.

2. I agree that my fig 5 was cluttered, but I think the revised version may be misleading in that it does not illustrate the aggegation of counters at the lower level counter clases. I suggest that someone less familiar with the spec consider whether the figure helps or hurts comprehension.

3. I also disagree with the renameing of Figure 4 and 5, in that  "Service Counters"  and "System Counters" appear to relate to counters of services or systems, which is not what the figures refer to.

-------------- Original message -------------- 

Based on Thursday's WIMS conference call the following updates have been included in the Counter Spec. 


1. Resolved previous issue on pg. 9. Impression contains both highlight color and full color... how is it counted? Answer - Full color (always count in terms of highest use). This notation added to definitions for Full Color and Highlight color. 
 - Question - Why is full-color hyphenated but highlight-color is not? Let's have it one way or the other. 
 - Question - Why is the definition of Highlight Color - Impressions generated that use one highlight colorant. Why not "one or more" highlight colorants? There can be a multi highlight color device. 

2. Change title of Fig 3 

3. Change title of Fig 4 

4. Replace Fig 5 with revised diagram supplied by Jerry T. 

5. Change title of Fig 5 

6. Added Jerry Thrasher as author (Jerry please verify for accuracy) 

Still need to address some random yellow highlighting... not sure which are artifacts and which require attention 

Per discussion, Ira is working on drafting some brief design requirements to add up front as distinct from conformance requirements. Why did we do Counters, what industry problem does it address, what are the high-level design imperatives. 

Some definitions are lacking sources. Ira has agreed to review definitions for proper sources. Others are invited to participate in this activity.
