This is the 05-12 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.
