Approved by acclimation. RA moved; AH seconded
Discussion about the .dita and .xml extensions. Improves the use of xml:lang
ITEM: Discussion of #12050 Attributes for DITA elements
PG encourages everyone to read carefully.
The <lq> is a complex example. Add scope attribute to handle external and internal; depracate
the type attibute.
The goal is to make the attributes appropriately consistent; should be more explicit
about the deprecated elements or attributes.
<longdesc> -- deprecate; use as a subelement rather than an attribute for <longdescref>
add <longdescref> subelement to image
add scope and format attribute
image with nested longdescref elements (format and scope)
Would be parallel to <alttitle>
Need to update the <object> element
ACTION: Michael Priestley will update.
ITEM: Review the W3C XML Best Practice document
DD and RA to review
Gershon and JoAnn will review for the Translation Subcommittee with input
JoAnn will send a note to Yves that we will review by 16 July
