Future of XSL-FO at W3C??
I have another question arising out of the mismatch of WG Charters and progress (or lack of it) on the ground. My question is what future does XSL-FO have at the W3C? The XSL-FO WG charter, http://www.w3.org/Style/2000/xsl-charter.html indicates that a Requirements document for XSL/XSL-FO version 2.0 should have been produced before the XSL 1.0 Candidate Recommendation. To the best of my knowledge, more than a year *after* the XSL 1.0 CR, there is still no publicly available XSL/XSL-FO Requirements document. Did I miss it? Assuming that I didn't miss an existing document what is one to read into this enormous delay? Also, how is one to interpret the future of a specification where the Charter expires in December 2002 with, supposedly, an XSL-FO 2.0 Recommendation as the product? Somehow I don't envisage the production of a Requirements document leading to a REC in a little over two and half months. So what gives? Clearly, there is slippage on XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0 too. But if there is an intent to further develop XSL-FO at the W3C when may we expect to see the long-promised "XSL 2.0" Requirements document? Can we assume that the XSL WG Charter is to be extended? I assume it must be if XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0 are to be taken through to REC. Anyone care to eludicate the situation? Andrew Watt
