Line One There was a young fellow from Ouagadougoo Issue: Is a byte-order mark required at the start of the limerick? Issue: Need feedback from Accessibility WG on whether it is acceptable to restrict limerick to certain age groups and genders. Issue: What are the scansion requirements? In fact, where is the requirements document at all? Issue: Obviously we need an XML syntax; the WG solicits input on this subject. Issue[RMT]: Should we be concerned with the surface syntax? Surely we should be defining the infoset of the limerick. 2. Line two Who [there is no consensus in the WG as to what the rest of this line should contain] 3. Line three He used DOM and SAX, Issue[ricko]: I am very disappointed with this. It shows a complete disregard for Unicode 6.3. It is also ultra vires and fattening. 4.

Line five [This section will describe the surprising results of of using XML Schemas in the bath.] 6. Normative references 7. Informative references -- Richard
