bill_kasdorf: is this a big, monolithic project or incremental?
16:10:53 [tzviya]
dauwhe: some changes are fundamental and must be implemented first
16:11:07 [pbelfanti]
yes, 201 is Paul
16:11:07 [Zakim]
16:11:16 [tzviya]
...example, must figure out a way to make custom CSS a possibility before we can do this

16:12:08 [tzviya]
ivan: how will this solve the fundamental issue of pagination? is this the only way to solve pagination?
16:12:23 [Zakim]
16:12:46 [Zakim]
16:13:07 [tzviya]
dauwhe: not sure about any of these. This is just getting started. Defining the fundamentals of Boxtree seems fundamental to exposing requirements of Brady's pagination requirements
16:13:41 [tzviya]
Ivan: This also seems much more complicated than pagination though. Is there a simpler way to do pagination?
16:14:00 [tzviya]
dauwhe: some of this is philosophical and based on extensible web manifesto
16:14:54 [tzviya]
...there is an effort to give peopel tools to do things rather than giving them specific features
16:15:10 [tzviya]
,,,it is unclear exactly how this will play out
16:15:50 [tzviya]
astearns: a concrete way that this could play out in pagination is that now people have JS libraries that predict how content will chunk out into "pages"
16:16:03 [tzviya]
...the boxtree model actually gives you the measurements
16:16:07 [clapierre]
16:16:50 [ivan]
ack astearns
16:16:52 [tzviya] participation is to tease out the little things that will make work in current browsers a little easier
16:17:01 [tzviya]
ack astearns

16:17:05 [tzviya]
ack pkra
16:17:15 [tzviya]
ack clapierre
16:18:03 [tzviya]
clappierre: figuring out how much text will fit on a "page" must depend on user as well because different users adjust size
16:18:15 [pkra]
16:18:32 [tzviya]
astearns: one of the things that we must adjust is that now scripts do not actually take in information about fonts
16:18:37 [tzviya]
ack pkra
16:18:46 [Zakim]
+ +1.512.445.aaff
16:19:24 [tzviya]
pkra: interacting with fonts is an interesting question that comes up with other APIs (such as mathJax) as well
16:19:34 [astearns]
yes - finding out what font is being used *and its actual metrics* is crucial
16:19:50 [pkra]
16:20:05 [dauwhe]
scribenick: dauwhe
16:20:24 [dauwhe]
tzviya: Brady isn't on call, but did move forward with paginaation requirements
16:20:33 [dauwhe]
Bill_Kasdorf: we made final edits to doc
16:20:45 [dauwhe]
... and responded to Tzviya's feedback
16:20:53 [dauwhe]
... and should be ready to publish on January 8
16:20:55 [dauwhe]
ivan: yes
16:21:16 [dauwhe]
Bill_Kasdorf: Nothing is being asked of us now :)
16:21:23 [tzviya]
16:21:41 [dauwhe]
... much of what we discovered is that education is needed, not new specs
16:22:04 [dauwhe]
... we're not clear on what our next steps would be. We're feeling somewhat finished.
16:22:07 [dauwhe]
tzviya: Thanks
