This is the final reminder for the MPEG WG11 AHG on OpenType
standardization at Hilton Head Hotel on 30 September 30 from 7:30 am -
9:00 am (Eastern Time).


I have not received any email responses to the announcement I made on 25
August 2004 and no feedback to the proposed text of the Open Font Format
specification document N11183 which is posted on the WG11 web site.


I only received confirmation from a few US experts.  If I do not receive
email from non-US experts by 20 September 2004 confirming participation
then the meeting will be canceled and the next meeting will be held in
Spain on 17 October 2004 for which I have already a room reserved.  The
USNB experts would have had their meeting on 28 September at the same


Below is the announcement that I made on 25 August.

AHG chair - WG11 OpenType Standardization




As promised at the last MPEG WG11 meeting in Redmond, I posted the
proposed text of the Open Font Format specification, using OpenType
version 1.4 as the source, to the MPEG WG11 web site as a single file
document in Word format using a generic name Open Font Format
Specification (OFFS) as a zipped file with no embedded links.  The file
size of the single word formatted document is about 8Mbytes but the
zipped file is about 1MB.  The source document, OpenType v 1.4, consists
of various formatted files such as html and word format with a lot of
hyperlinks, whereas the proposed text is a single word document, which
contains minor editorial not technical changes, and it would be easier
to review.


This email is a reminder that a WG11 AHG meeting has been announced for
in the mandate document 6502 to be held at Hilton Head Hotel on
September 30 from 7:30 am - 9:00 am (Eastern Time).  If you want to
participate by attending or teleconferencing, please let me know by
email.  Here is a copy of the mandate document:



AHG on Font Format Representation

2.	To recommend how MPEG should proceed in the light of this
3.	If relevant conditions are met, to create a proposed draft of an
