Comment #00260 - Rename Parameter Entities - z39.96-2012.pdf

This request is submitted by Jeff Beck on behalf of the BITS working group. It was originally submitted by Deborah Lapeyre <dalapeyre@mulberrytechnologies.com> during a BITS Working Group meeting.

Should we rename all the JATS parameter entities to avoid problems like the one just discussed for MathML (http://www.niso.org/apps/org/workgroup/jats-sc/view_comment.php?comment_id=258)? This will not change the ANSI/NISO spec, but would be completely backwards incompatible with all previous versions of BITS/JATS. It would amount to a pseudo-namespace prefix (prefix only) on all of the parameter entities.
Submitter Proposed Solution
This is a very complex issue. The BITS Working Group forwards this request to the JATS Standing Committee for a response.
Developer Response
This comment is related to 00259 (MathML 3.0) This comment will be deferred until the next non-backward-compatible release.

• For this release, change the name of the parameter entity that clashes with NISO JATS in the MathML
3.0 module. This issue will be revisited at the next full (not draft) release.
