Hi, Folks-

This is a mailing list dedicated to the Canvas API, a drawing interface 
brought into the W3C as part of the HTML WG.  The initial proposal is 
limited to a 2D immediate-mode drawing interface.

There is substantial interest in tightening up the specification of the 
Canvas API, and extending it in limited ways, such as defining a manner 
for the drawing API to be used in SVG as well as HTML.  While there are 
already extensions to the API to allow 3D drawing, the primary goal of 
this list is to promote the timely and efficient publication of and 
interoperable 2D Canvas API as close to existing implementations as 

This list is intended to serve as a dedicated thread for matters 
specific to the Canvas API and its intersection with other DOM 
interfaces and with markup.
