Activity Report 3 of XML Project

XML Project/Japan

In June 12, 2000, We reported a preliminary XML DTD for ISO standards. The DTD has been posted on the ITSIG web page.

We are now revising the DTD, in particular, for the table elements. After its completion we will draft the final report including the DTD and explanation of the semantics. It will be submitted by February 2001. During the work we would like to have an opportunity to discuss it with Mr. Samarin.

We recognize the user requirements for a style specification for XML/SGML document interchange. In the June report, we attached some simple examples of XSL specification for ISO standards described by XML. More sophisticated style specifications using XSL/XSLT/XPath will also be developed and reported by Feb. 2001.
