Character Model for the World Wide Web is a W3C Recommendation

The World Wide Web Consortium today released Character
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/>  Model for the World Wide
Web 1.0: Fundamentals as a W3C Recommendation. The document allows Web
applications to transmit and process the characters of the world's
languages. Building on the Universal Character Set defined by Unicode and
ISO/IEC 10646, it gives authors of specifications, software developers, and
content developers a common reference for text manipulation.

 

Xml:id Is a W3C Candidate Recommendation

W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of xml:id Version
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-xml-id-20050208/>  1.0 to Candidate
Recommendation. The specification introduces a predefined attribute name
that can always be treated as an ID and hence can always be recognized.
Comments are invited through 10 March.

 

Working Drafts: Web Services Addressing

The Web Services Addressing Working Group has released three updated Working
Drafts. Web <http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-ws-addr-core-20050215/>  Services
Addressing - Core enables message transmission through networks that include
processing nodes such as endpoint managers, firewalls, and gateways in a
transport-neutral manner. WSDL Binding
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-ws-addr-wsdl-20050215/>  defines how the core
specification's properties are described in the Web Services Description
Language (WSDL <http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20/> ). SOAP Binding
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-ws-addr-soap-20050215/>  defines their
association to SOAP <http://www.w3.org/TR/soap12-part1/>  messages.

 

Working Drafts: Pronunciation Lexicon Specification 1.0

The Voice Browser Working Group has released the First Public Working Draft
of Pronunciation
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-pronunciation-lexicon-20050214/>  Lexicon
Specification (PLS) Version 1.0. Designed for ease of use by developers and
internationally, PLS allows pronunciation information to be specified for
speech recognition and speech synthesis engines in voice browsing
applications. Pronunciations grouped together in a PLS document may be
referenced from other markup languages such as
<http://www.w3.org/TR/speech-grammar/> SRGS and
<http://www.w3.org/TR/speech-synthesis/> SSML. 

 

Working Drafts: XQuery, XPath and XSLT

The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group have released ten
Working Drafts for the XQuery, XPath and XSLT languages. Please see the
status section of each document for authorship and change history
information. XML Query is an XML-aware programming language that can be
optimized to run database-style searches, queries and joins over collections
of documents, databases and XML or object repositories. Applications
implementing XPath can address the nodes in an XML tree. XSLT 2 allows
transformation of XML documents and non-XML data into other documents.
