TAG Product: Fragment Identifiers and Mime Types


The goal of this work is to describe the contradictions in the definitions between different specifications (such as media fragments and application/xml mime type definition) in the definition of fragment identifiers, to describe any changes to draft documents that are required to manage those contradictions, and to provide some general guidelines to those creating mime type definitions in the future around the interpretation of fragment identifiers.
