Congratulations to the XML Working Group and especially the editors for 
yesterday's publication of the Proposed Recommendation.

I've only had a brief few moments to examine the new standard (I'm in Canada 
on business, very business-busy), but it doesn't look that different from the 
11/17 WD.  Are there any significant changes lurking?  I haven't seen any so 
far, and suspect that there aren't.  As the document won't be final until 
January at least, it may be a little premature to ask, but I'm curious.  The 
book's in press already anyway (based on WD 8/7/97 and corrected for WD 
11/17/97) but I'd like to know the expected lifetime of the documents I've 
created so far.
