UK Vote: : DISAPPROVAL OF THE DRAFT FOR REASONS APPENDED BELOW. Acceptance of

these reasons and appropriate changes in the text will change our vote to approval

 

Technical Comments

 

Clause 12.6.29.1

Explain more clearly what does it mean to say that a sound-voice flow object should be "output rather

than displayed or inlined". What constitutes the display of a sound-voice flow object? How does this differ

from output?

Clause B.1

In definition of quantity and related numbers the last sentence is unclear. What constitutes a "large size

of numerical object" when it is displayed? Is this decision system dependent?

Clause B.3

In the definition of subgrove-spec make it clearer what "class add null remove children"

means/represents.

Annex D

It should be made clear that this annex is derived from the SGML Extended Facilities defined in Annex A

of the second edition of ISO 10744. At all times the normative definitions in 10744 have precedence

over those in this informative annex

 

Editorial Comments

Introduction

Change "This amendment 1" to "This amendment"

In a) change "on flow object classes of" to "flow object classes for"

Clause 12.6.28.5

Change "specify" for "specifies".

Change "initial value" to "default value" (twice)

Clause 12.6.28.6

Explain meaning of terms voice-source and semantics as they are not formally defined DSSSL terms.

Clause 12.6.28.7

Change "classes be" to "classes may be"

Explain meaning of OK-ng and information.

Clause 12.6.29

Change "a external entity" to "an external entity"

Change "object of" to "objects of".

Change "on" to "as an"

Clause 12.6.29.2

Change "be atomic" to "be an atomic"

Change "output?: is boolean" to "output?: boolean" to conform with other paragraphs.

Change "outputed" to "output"

Change "specifications is" to "specifications are". (It is unclear why this paragraph should be specific to

animation flow objects and not to sound-voice objects as well.)

Clause 12.3.6

First list in this section conflicts, without adequate explanation, with the list at the start of 12.3.5.

The text at the start of the list could be changed to:

"This amendment, therefore, extends the set of DSSSL formatting areas to the following set:"

Clause 12.2.1

Change "This API shall report" to "This API reports"

(It is unclear why the changes to 12.2 have been listed after those to 12.6.)

Annex B

In first sentence, change "on" to "for"

Clause B.1

In first sentence correct spelling of "following"

In definition of symbol change "script" to "scripts"

In definition of char change "charcter" to "character" and remove "circle" from "open circle parentheses"

In definition of languate correct spelling of "spellcheck"

In definition of node-list, change "of grove" to "of a grove", "by node-list as" to "by a node-list with" and

"transformation" to "transformations"

Clause B.4

In definition of length should "rapage-height" just be "page-height"?

Annex D

Change "amang" to "among" and insert "a " after "called"
