Hi RDFa-ers,

Good news!

HTML+RDFa was published today as a Working Draft via the HTML Working
Group. This means that RDFa is now an active work product of the HTML
WG, which is also working on HTML5:


HTML+RDFa defines how RDFa should operate when used in HTML4, HTML5, and
XHTML5 documents. Previously, we had defined RDFa for XHTML1 documents
via the XHTML+RDFa specification.

Collectively, RDFa support in HTML4, XHTML1, HTML5 and XHTML5 cover all
of the major languages used to generate almost all of the pages on the
web now and for at least the next 10 years. The perma-link to the W3C
news entry can be found here:


This is a result of the hard work led by the Semantic Web Deployment WG,
XHTML2 WG, HTML WG, RDFa Task Force and of course, those of you on these
mailing lists - the many people that have provided input and helped
refine, implement and spread the use of RDFa through your websites,
projects and companies. Thank you for your continued effort and for
being a part of showing the Web why semantics matter. :)
