[Lexicog] Fwd: Re: Charter proposals for dictionaries and indexes projects now available for comment

Dear All,

I am forwarding an e-mail from a colleague. Possibly, some members of
this list may be interested in looking at, and commenting on, the
proposal of the EPUB group.

I am not sure if they have attempted to contact lexicographers or
consulted the existing dictionary-oriented standards. The modest
reference list suggests they did not.

The colleague comments further:

> in EPUB 3 but decided that it did more than necessary.  EPUB is meant as 
> a format for delivery, not an archival format, so they are only trying 
> to cover the limited set of use cases described here.

Best regards,

Forwarding this from the mailing list of the IDPF EPUB Working Group.
Note the draft proposal for a working group on facilitating inclusion of
dictionaries in EPUB.  I believe feedback should be sent to Markus
Gylling, whose email is given in Google Code.
