2.2.2 Dependencies

Contains this note:

This specification might have certain additional requirements on character encodings, image formats, audio formats, and video formats in the respective sections.

This note is not clear. I'm not sure what an "additional requirement on character encodings" would be? Does it mean that certain character encodings will be required/banned?

For instance. Or that BOMs be used in particular ways, or that decoding happen in particular ways, or anything really.

Not really sure how best to clarify this, do you have any suggestions?
Comment 2 Addison Phillips 2012-09-28 00:05:56 UTC
Based on your last response and our review in the WG, I think you can close this.
