    Hi folks,

    Both of these documents are well worth reading, in light of
    future work on XHTML-Print and XML-based Print Svcs Interface.

    Cheers,

    Subject: Character Model for the Web + Unicode in XML and other Markup
    Languages

    This week sees the publication of:

      Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0
      W3C Working Draft 20 February 2002
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-charmod-20020220

    and:

      Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages
      W3C Note 18 February 2002
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/NOTE-unicode-xml-20020218

    The Character Model "provides authors of specifications, software
    developers, and content developers with a common reference for
    interoperable text manipulation on the World Wide Web. Topics addressed
    include encoding identification, early uniform normalization, string
    identity matching, string indexing, and URI conventions, building on the
    Universal Character Set, defined jointly by Unicode and ISO/IEC 10646.
    Some introductory material on characters and character encodings is also
    provided."

    This specification has been extensively revised over the past year,
    reflecting the Last Call Comments on:

      Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0
      W3C Working Draft 26 January 2001
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-charmod-20010126

    The second document, Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages, is
    published jointly with the Unicode Consortium. It provides guidelines
    for the use of Unicode with markup languages such as XML.

    Both documents are especially topical in view of the work currently
    taking place, within the W3C XML Core WG, on:

      XML 1.1
      W3C Working Draft 13 December 2001
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xml11-20011213
