Dear all,

Just a friendly reminder that the next WG11 meeting is coming up soon (March 21-25) and if we want to introduce any additional changes in the current working draft amendment, we need to finalize them prior to March 15. We will be able to make changes later (if necessary) via ballot comments, but it would be best to make sure that we have discussed and reached a consensus on the items that have already been proposed - these include some items proposed by Behdad (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mpeg-OTspec/message/530) and a new proposal from Kamal.

I was also looking through the archives and found the email from John Hudson sent to the OpenType list earlier this year (copying below):

Message from OpenType list:

I can't recall if this has been addressed here before:

Presuming a version 4 OS/2 table, what is the correct setting of fsSelection bit 8 (WWS) for a single font, i.e. a font that is not part of a family. I am guessing that it should be on, since such a font has no need of name table IDs 21 or 22 and effectively this bit signals that these IDs are absent, but the spec doesn't make this clear, talking only in terms of different kinds of families.


Is this something that you believe needs to be addressed in the current amendment?

Thank you,

Dear all,

Thank you again for your active participation in the AHG activities and for your contributions to the development of the OFF and CFR standards.
This email is an AHG activities kick-off and a reminder that we have less than two months left until the next MPEG meeting. According to our mandate, we need to:
1.       Study and improve WD on IOS/IEC 14496-22/AMD 2
2.       Study CD of ISO/IEC 14496-28
3.       Prepare 1-pagers related to font formats

Please note that there are items that were proposed for amendments and were postponed until this time - we need to finalize them and reach a consensus in order to add new amendment items to the current working draft. The next meeting will be on March 21-25, and the working draft needs to be finalized no later than March 15th. Please review the prior activities on this list (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mpeg-OTspec/message/529) and submit your comments and proposals for the working draft amendment (see links to the attachments in the end of the forwarded email).

We also need to review the text of the Committee Draft of the Composite Font Representation standard. If any changes or corrections are necessary, we will discuss them on this list and then submit as CD ballot comments via respective National Bodies of AHG members.

Thank you and best regards,
