The W3C XML Fragment WG [1] has just published its first Working Draft 
of the XML Fragment Interchange Recommendation [2].  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. 

Interested parties are invited to review the specification and
report implementation experience.  As indicated in the document, 
comments should be sent to [3], (a publicly archived [4] list).  
Comments received by 1999 March 26 will be considered for a 
revision soon after.

All comments will be considered in light of the XML Fragment Requirements 
Document [5].  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.
