Report of SC34/WG2

1. ISO/IEC 10036 (Procedures for font-related identifiers)

1.1 Cor.2

SC34 N309 (Proposed Technical Corrigendum 2 to ISO/IEC 10036:1996) was circulated in 2002-06-21. The ballot was closed in 2002-09-21 and the Corrigendum 2 was approved without any national body disapprovals or comments as shown in SC34 N336.

Responding to the SC34 Secretariat's request, the project editor forwarded the final text in JTC1 form G19 in 2002-09-29 for submission to ITTF to be published.

2. DSSSL (Document Style Semantics and Specification Language)

2.1 Amd.1 to DSSSL

SC34 N326 (FPDAM1 to ISO/IEC 10179: Extensions to DSSSL) was circulated in 2002-07-19. The ballot was closed in 2002-11-19.

The ballot disposition will be discussed in the WG2 Baltimore meeting.

2.2 Editor change

Mr. S. Kaida changed his business. Accordingly, SC34/Japan proposes a change of DSSSL editor to Mr. Takashige Noguchi from Mr. S. Kaida.

In the Baltimore meeting, WG2 will accept the change of DSSSL editor and request for SC34 to accept the change.

3. ISO/IEC TR 19758 (DSSSL Library for Complex Compositions)

3.1 Ballot resolution

In accordance with SC34 N319 (Notice of Meeting, Ballot Resolution for DTR 19758), the ballot resolution meeting was held in 2002-07-29/30, Nigata, Japan, with participation of 5 experts from Japan and Korea. Disposition of comments was created and distributed as SC34 N330.

The final text of ISO/IEC TR 19758 was forwarded to SC34 Secretariat in 2002-08-30.

3.2 Status

ISO/Geneva reported me the status of TR 19758 in 2002-11-05:

Regarding the status of TR 19758, the text in a Word format contains some "exotic" fonts which generate a corrupted pdf file (we couldn't display and print the whole TR text).

Our composition service will have to clean up the Word file document and produce a correct pdf file (substitute all disfigured fonts...).

Therefore, this processing will take longer than for an usual JTC 1 document and, the TR Proof will be sent to you in 2003.
