Hi Mike,

I have not seen the Aug 22 version.
How do I get that?

Will you be able to incorporate my revised
Character Sets and Character Data sections
(along with the tables of characters)
before the Oct 10 release (assuming they are acceptable)?

See other questions below....

Will that be available on October 10?  I don't mind ftp'ing
the PostScript over if I can have nice formatted text
rather than ASCII.

Any chance that it could be ready in time for discussion at
the SGML 94 conference (Nov 7-10).  Some of the participants
on this list will meet then and there might be a good opportunity
to review the spec with the SGML community.  Perhaps a BOF at
SGML 94 could also be arranged.
