someone here was wanting to comment on Norman Walsh's blog about html5 but couldn't - he just posted an entry saying that he fixed a bug in his software preventing comments.

ACTION-41 Consider a new requirements issue about the overlap with HTTP closed
17:18:51 [MikeSmith]
DanC : Julian, you expressed some interest in that?
17:19:00 [MikeSmith]
Julian : the content-type sniffing thing?
17:19:03 [MikeSmith]
DanC : yeah
17:19:09 [MikeSmith]
Julian : yeah, let's talk about it now
17:19:39 [MikeSmith]
Julian : issue is that HTML spec mandates content-type sniffing ...
17:19:52 [MikeSmith]
... while the HTTP spec and TAG document prohibit it
17:20:04 [MikeSmith]
DanC : I would really like a test case
17:20:22 [MikeSmith]
Julian : I think Ian Hickson has a big set of test cases
17:20:25 [MikeSmith]
... related to this
17:20:27 [MikeSmith]
Hixie ?
17:20:40 [MikeSmith]
DanC : anybody got a URL for that?
17:20:52 [Julian]
test cases:
17:21:15 [MikeSmith]
DanC : would like EARL reports on these
17:21:16 [matt]
matt has joined #html-wg
17:21:35 [MikeSmith]
DanC : would like review by the HTTP working group
17:21:56 [MikeSmith]
Julian : We have the argument that, on the one hand, the specs require to trust the content-type that is given
17:22:05 [MikeSmith]
... but the HTML spec requiring UAs not to do that
17:22:33 [gsnedders]
Julian: didn't you mean ?
17:22:44 [MikeSmith]
... also the ongoing discussing about if a UA is required to report discrepancies if it does sniffing and finds them
17:22:52 [DanC]
trackbot-ng, status
17:22:55 [gsnedders]
(the ones in the parent folder merely check it obeys the given content-type in some cases)

. ACTION: Julian to investigate expected results to tests in collaboration with the IETF HTTP WG
17:23:34 [gsnedders]
DanC: it should be
17:23:57 [DanC]
ACTION: Julian to investigate expected results to tests in collaboration with the IETF HTTP WG
17:23:57 [trackbot-ng]
Created ACTION-44 - Investigate expected results to tests in collaboration with the IETF HTTP WG [on Julian Reschke - due 2008-01-31].
17:24:14 [MikeSmith]
Julian : looking at that, it seems like the tests may actually have expected results stated
17:24:36 [DanC]
ACTION: Dan to developer EARL/hReview reports based on from a handful of user agents
17:24:36 [trackbot-ng]
Created ACTION-45 - Developer EARL/hReview reports based on from a handful of user agents [on Dan Connolly - due 2008-01-31].

ISSUE-29 -- Should the HTML 5 specification introduce URI schemes such as javascript:? -- OPEN
17:24:57 [trackbot-ng]
17:25:14 [MikeSmith]
DanC : I might have jumped the gun on this on a little bit
17:25:41 [gsnedders]
for javascript: the normal parsing rules for URIs can't apply, because it relies on all kinds of behaviour
17:25:42 [ChrisWilson]
ChrisWilson has joined #html-wg
17:25:45 [MikeSmith]
... anne clarified that there may be a separate draft spec related to this
17:26:02 [ChrisWilson]
hmmm...that explains why I wasn't getting any updates.
17:26:07 [MikeSmith]
DanC : we should decide as a working group whether that's in scope
17:26:17 [MikeSmith]
DanC : anybody want to take action on that?

17:32:15 [MikeSmith]
DanC : anybody sees Paul Krill's article?

"The most interesting thing will be what happens when those capabilities get into native HTML and what impact that has on the rich Internet development market," he said. Specific plug-in technologies are not supported on every platform, he said. "[Thusly], as a developer I might be more interested in writing HTML 5," Hammond said.

ChrisWilson : I would like to put in a request to not re-publish the spec every 3 months
17:41:18 [MikeSmith]
... (because of need to do patent review)
17:41:31 [gsnedders]
I don't think it's worthwhile republishing the spec every 3 months, but what other documents do we have that change enough to be worthwhile publishing?

agendum 6. "aria-role ISSUE-14 (edit)" taken up [from DanC]
17:56:01 [oedipus]
GJR's ARIA status report:
17:56:01 [oedipus]
ARIA Suite will now contain: 1) ARIA Roadmap; 2) Roles, States, and Properties for Accessible Rich Internet Applications (combination of 2 previously seperate documents); 3) ARIA Best Practices; and 4) ARIA Primer (new)
17:56:01 [oedipus]
two approaches to embedding ARIA:
17:56:01 [oedipus]
1) no namespaces, no prefixes -- host languages reserve all attribute names matching the pattern aria-*. This allows the ARIA states and properties to be controlled by the PFWG specification, including future maintenance.
17:56:02 [oedipus]
2) by Namespaces in XML -- Role Attribute Module () will give @role a 'home' namespace from which it can be cited using the Namespaces in XML Recommendation technique, so that ARIA can be used in DIAL and other dialects of XHTML, which are likely to be used primarily to feed middleware, as there is no immediate prospect of this technology being picked up widely by browsers any time soon
17:56:07 [oedipus]
testing - collaborative matrix (ARIA Test Tests) being maintained at:
17:56:10 [oedipus]
problem: links to Best Practices document (no public draft yet) and the 2 drafts that are now one, but are not yet public
17:57:37 [DanC]
(I strongly encourage you to migrate from to the wiki)

18:01:28 [Lachy]

18:01:32 [Lachy]
if I can find the time
18:02:26 [MikeSmith]
Lachy - Ok, if you have time, might be good to post a short status report to public-html to let people know it's been update
18:02:30 [MikeSmith]
18:02:44 [Zakim]
18:02:47 [Lachy]
yeah, will do when I make some more substantial updates
18:02:58 [Lachy]
I want to take all the previous feedback into account first
18:03:10 [MikeSmith]
some possibility of that being a candidate for publishing to meet our April 22 heartbeat deadline
18:03:18 [MikeSmith]
Lachy - understood
18:03:29 [Lachy]
in particular, work out a good way of presenting and describing each element
18:03:41 [Lachy]
I should be able to get an FPWD ready by April
18:03:45 [MikeSmith]
to publish by April 22, we would want to have it wrapped up at least 3 weeks before then
18:04:27 [Lachy]
yep. I assume we would need another group survey, plus plenty of arguining about why it shouldn't be published before then
18:04:28 [Lachy]
18:05:17 [MikeSmith]
Lachy - yeah ;)
18:05:23 [MikeSmith]
agreement from group by March 31 to publish it, I think
18:05:34 [Lachy]
18:05:51 [MikeSmith]
probably at least two weeks of wrangling before that
18:06:23 [MikeSmith]
so freezed by March 17 or so perhaps
18:06:24 [Lachy]
ok, so I need to put in a lot of work during feb
18:06:55 [Lachy]
I don't like freezing WDs
18:07:08 [MikeSmith]
yeah, I think you would, if we want to be able to have it ready for review and discussion in mid-March
18:07:47 [Lachy]
I want to get someone to help come up with a nicer stylesheet for it
18:07:55 [Lachy]
mine looks crap :-)
18:08:01 [MikeSmith]
Lachy - yeah, well, groups generally don't like to agree to publish documents that are going to unilaterally change after the version they've agreed to publish
18:08:19 [sampablokuper]
sampablokuper has left #html-wg
18:08:53 [Lachy]
well, I can just fork it at some point, make editorial changes only to the one that will be published and more substantial changes to the other
18:09:02 [Lachy]
then merge afterwards
18:09:07 [MikeSmith]
Lachy - yeah, exactly
18:09:39 [MikeSmith]
anyway, this gives you some tangible deadline to work toward
18:09:49 [MikeSmith]
that usually helps to keep motivated
18:09:50 [Lachy]
18:10:59 [MikeSmith]
and to helps editors to convince slave-devil managers/employers to allow them time to do the writing

DanC, HTML5 in fact depends on the javascript: URI scheme registration
23:47:16 [anne]
DanC, HTML5 simply defines how it interacts with navigation, history, and browsing contexts as far as I can tell
23:48:29 [DanC]
ok, then maybe the issue is no big deal
23:48:52 [DanC]
we just need to make sure it gets registered

The same goes for the magic about:blank
