Greetings. This is a major revision to the v3 format draft. It has many changes, but the two biggest ones are:

- The description of the "prep tool" that is part of the current workflow design. In short, where earlier there was an assumption that each formatter (such as the software that turned XML into HTML) would do all of the calculations for derived content, now there is a "prep tool" that will convert XML to more complete XML, and that formatters will use the latter as input. This also affects the use of the term "processor" throughout the document.

- A change in the design of relative references. In earlier drafts, relative references were done as additional attributes in <xref>; in the new draft, <xref> acts as it does in v2, and there is a new <relref> element for relative references. This was done to make it easier for authors to understand how the XML they create will be processed. Please read <eref> and <relref> and <xref> for a complete description, including examples of how the HTML for each might be rendered.

There are a few additional changes from the last draft such as adding "anchor" and "pn" attributes to more elements; they can be seen easily in the diff.
