This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to publish new revisions of the following documents in accordance with the Working Group Heartbeat requirements. Depending on availability of Team resources to prepare and publish the drafts, publication will be either on December 16th, or in early January. 

HTML5: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/
HTML+RDFa: http://dev.w3.org/html5/rdfa/
HTML Microdata: http://dev.w3.org/html5/md/
HTML Canvas 2D Context: http://dev.w3.org/html5/2dcontext/
HTML: The Markup Language: http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/
HTML/XHTML Compatibility Authoring Guidelines: http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/html-xhtml-authoring-guide.html
HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives: http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/

Additionally, and as we have done with previous republications of the HTML5 draft, the chairs would like to ask Anne to update the HTML5 diffs from HTML4 to reflect the latest changes.


Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Wednesday, December 15th, this resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:

- As a Working Draft publication, the document does not need not be complete, to meet all technical requirements, or to have consensus on the contents.
- Objections may be made on specific documents but not on others. Counting the differences document, there are effectively eight different documents under consideration at this time.
- Drafts that are on track for Last Call next year now all reflect resolution of all pre-LC bugs. This includes HTML5, HTML+RDFa, HTML Microdata, HTML Canvas 2D Context, HTML/XHTML Compatibility Authoring Guidelines, and HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives. For a number of these documents, however, some tracker issues remain to be resolved.
