This is just a friendly reminder that we need to review the text of the WD (see below) with all the recent changes - this is particularly important if you have any comments or proposed changes, or find anything I messed up while editing the draft with new proposed technologies added. The only way changes can be made in the draft is if we review them here on this list and prepare an input contribution for the next WG11 meeting, which will happen the week of March 31 - April 4. As usual, input contributions will have to be submitted ahead of time, and the deadline for submission is March 25th.

Please download and review the text of the OFF working draft and respond back to this list with any proposed changes or comments.

Thank you,

Dear AHG members,

As you know, at the last MPEG meeting we received three responses for the previously published CFP for color fonts and math layout technology. As the results, the resolution accepted at the meeting was to harmonize all three proposals and integrate them in the current working draft of 3rd edition of the ISO/IEC 14496-22 "Open Font Format". The revised, red-line version of the working draft is attached to this email for your review and comments.

One of the mandates the AHG has until the next MPEG meeting is to study the text of the working draft and prepare the recommendations (and input contributions, if necessary) to be reviewed at the next meeting in early April. The original plan was to finalize the working draft and promote it to the next Committee Draft stage - I believe this can be accomplished if we make sure that all comments and changes are discussed and submitted by this AHG for consideration at the next meeting. One possible change could be e.g. the integration of the proposed new color bitmap tables with the existing embedded bitmap tables; however, this requires further feasibility studies to make sure that this change (if it were to be adopted) would not  affect any existing implementations.

We also have the mandates to review and study the draft amendment of the ISO/IEC 14496-18 "Font compression and streaming" and the draft corrigendum of ISO/IEC 14496-28 "Composite Font Representation" - both documents have been discussed on the list a while ago, and both are now under ballots.

Looking forward to your comments on the attached red-line text of the WD. A special request to all who submitted the proposals in response to the CFP - please review the changes for accuracy and report to this list anything that you may have found that needs to be revised.

Thank you very much,
