This material conforms to the
2008-02-18 styles for Site Bootstrapping.  Check those pages for additional details of the approach and the styles. 
Contact the nfoWorks technical coordinator with questions and to report any defects that you notice.

  2014-07-11 d140605d: We may need a WD00 as a null document that bootstraps the development process. [dh:2014-07-12 Definitely.  This is also something that can be managed in part at the rct/ Construction Zone.
  2014-07-11 d140605d: If RCT is born as a hypertext, it is not clear what the reliable means for producing static interchange formats might be. 
  2014-07-11 d140605d: We need to be sure that freezing works when material is included in a WD snapshot of any kind.  Material can be saved across WDs, but the doc-eng page must somehow reflect that.  It might not be appropriate to use change-tracking in early development and early drafts, where substantial material additions are made. 
  2014-07-11 d140605d: Allow for cumulative change history, acknowledgments, and errata cases.  There should be errata placeholders.  Not sure about granularity.  Working drafts may contain faux change-tracking with respect to earlier working drafts.  A specification [draft] may be clean but identical in all other respects to a published WD.
  2014-07-09 Create a combination list that provides outline and links to related development material.
  2014-06-30 Figure out the difference between a TOC, and Outline, and a hybrid that links to development folders to help when navigating to work in progress and maintenance pages in devNote folios.
2014-07-11 d140605d: Version progression might be 1.0 for text, 1.1 for addition of tables, and 1.2 for presentations, other cases not already reached in ODF 1.2.
2014-07-11 d140605d: Create a Document-Engineering approach
2014-07-11 d140605d: We want a W3C-style version progression that uses nomenclature comparable to OASIS specifications.  There are Working Drafts (WDnn), there are specification drafts (SDnn) that also consume a WD number.  Hmm.  It might be more like nn-WD, nn-SD, and nn-SP (specification or maybe nn-PR for profile).  These are maybe better done as dated with status suffixes?
2014-07-11 d140605d: For born hypertext using include pages, cross references to other pages are tricky, as are permalinks on pages.  [dh:2014-07-12 That has been captured.  An experiment will be done with WD00.]
2014-07-11 Beside the default page, and whatever it threads through, there are other (folders?) that provide the side-by-side, version progression.  Check the W3C pages of multi-page documents to see what they might be doing.
done 2014-07-12 Check the W3C scheme and account for it on d140605d
done 2014-07-12 d140605*: Fix weirdness in the ways the first top-title line is heavier than the next line.  This had to do with <strong> and the font being smaller than the next line, the one with the folio title.
done 2014-07-09 d140605c: Create initial trial outline based on typical OASIS Standard and ISO/IEC International Standard forms.  This is very high-level.
done 2014-06-30 d140605: Connect from the RCT front page
done 2014-06-30 Make placeholders for d140605, d140605a, d140605b, and d140605c
