  2008-02-21: The Semantic Web Deployment Working Group and the XHTML 2
  Working Group have published the Last Call Working Draft of RDFa in
  XHTML: Syntax and Processing. RDFa is a specification for attributes
  to be used with languages such as HTML and XHTML to express structured
  data. When publishers can express structured data, and when tools can
  read it, a new world of user functionality becomes available, letting
  users transfer structured data between applications and web sites, and
  allowing browsing applications to improve the user experience. For
  example, a photo's creator, camera setting information, resolution,
  location and topic can be published as easily as the original photo
  itself, enabling structured search and sharing. With RDFa, the
  rendered, hypertext data of XHTML is reused, so that publishers don't
  need to repeat significant data in the document content. The RDFa
  specification explains use of the RDFa attributes with XHTML. Comments
  are welcome through 21 March.

Special thanks to Ben, Manu, Michael, Mark, Steven, Shane, Diego, Ed,
and Ivan (who's been helping enormously from "outside" the WGs)
for getting us to this milestone.
