New Interim Character Model Draft, Unicode in XML
13:00, 20 Feb 2002 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

The W3C has published a Working Draft of Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0 between a previous and an upcoming Last Call draft.

The draft reflects current status but is not intended for comment, like some of its recent predecessors:

"This interim publication is used to document further progress made on addressing the comments received during the first Last Call....We do not encourage comments on this Working Draft; instead we ask reviewers to wait for the second Last Call. "

The Working Group continues to respond to comments on the prior last call, which are not public. There is a public mailing list for discussion of internationalization (i18n) issues, including Character Model issues. A change log is available.

The Note, Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages, is a joint production of the W3C and the Unicode Consortium. Its Change History indicates that this version is updated for Unicode 3.1 and 3.2, and contains additional sections on the Byte Order Mark and Musical Controls.
