The XML Fragment WG  has just published its Final Working Draft of the XML Fragment Interchange Recommendation . A Last Call period starts now and runs until April 23. Its abstract reads:
The XML standard supports logical documents composed of possibly several entities. It may be desirable to view or edit one or more of the entities or parts of entities while having no interest, need, or ability to view or edit the entire document. The problem, then, is how to provide to a recipient of such a fragment the appropriate information about the context that fragment had in the larger document that is not available to the recipient. The XML Fragment WG is chartered with defining a way to send fragments of an XML document--regardless of whether the fragments are predetermined entities or not--without having to send all of the containing document up to the part in question. This document defines Version 1.0 of the [eventual] W3C Recommendation that addresses this issue.
Comments are solicited from all W3C WGs and the public at this time. As indicated in the document, comments should be sent to , (a publicly archived list). Comments received by 1999 April 23 will be considered for the Proposed Recommendation version.
All comments from W3C working groups and from recognized liaison groups will be considered in light of the XML Fragment Requirements Document . In particular, basic scope issues and design decisions will be reconsidered only when grave and previously unrecognized flaws are uncovered. Requests for enhancement will typically be deferred for later versions of the specification under development unless the enhancement is uncontroversial and its incorporation would not materially delay production of the specification.
