     There is a single specification deliverable for the HTML Working  
Group, the HTML specification, a platform-neutral and device- 
independent design with the following items in scope:

     * A language evolved from HTML4 for describing the semantics of  
documents and applications on the World Wide Web. This will be a  
complete specification, not a delta specification.
     * An extensible, serialized form of such a language, using XML.
     * A serialized form of such a language using a defined, non-XML  
syntax compatible with the 'classic HTML' parsers of existing Web  
     * Document Object Model (DOM) interfaces providing APIs for such  
a language.
     * Forms and common UI widgets such as progress bars, datagrids,  
menus, and other controls.
     * APIs for the manipulation of linked media.
     * Editing APIs and user-driven WYSIWYG editing features.

The HTML WG is encouraged to provide a mechanism to permit  
independently developed vocabularies such as Internationalization Tag  
Set (ITS), Ruby, and RDFa to be mixed into HTML documents. Whether  
this occurs through the extensibility mechanism of XML, whether it is  
also allowed in the classic HTML serialization, and whether it uses  
the DTD and Schema modularization techniques, is for the HTML WG to
