Hi All
Based on our existing experience in building widgets we have encountered
some limitations in termes of caracters in the way the author description is
being proposed, and I think it would be more open if we propose the
following desciption:

>>>>>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
        id="http://example.org/widget"
        version="2.0 Beta"
        height="200"
        width="200">
  <title>The example widget!</title>
  <description>
    A sample widget to demonstrate some of the possibilities.
  </description>

    <author>
        <name>My Name</name>
        <url>http://www.myCompany.com/</url>
        <email>myname@myCompany.com</email>
        <icon src=²images/author-icon.png² type=²²/>
    </author>
  
  <icon role="small" src="icons/widget-icon.png" />
  <icon role="favicon" src="icons/widget-favicon.png" />
  <icon role="screenshot" src="icons/widget-screenshot.png" />

  <content src="index.html"/>
  <access network="true"/>
  <license>
    Example license (based on MIT License)
  </license>

</widget> 
<<<<<

The name element will allow to use special caracters (³&² or others)
The url element would allow the url to propose parameters to go directly to
the widget¹s url page as opposed to the companie¹s home url.
Addind the icon element within the author also alows to distinguish the
widget icon from the author icon.

Best Regards, 
Benoit
