This is the 28 September - 05 October 2012 edition of a "Weekly digest of  
W3C news and trends" that the W3C Communications Team prepares for the W3C  
Membership and public-w3c-digest mailing list (publicly archived [1]) and  
sends separately. This digest aggregates information about W3C from online  
media, a snapshot of how W3C and its work is apprehended as viewed from  
online media.
