Working Draft: SPARQ Protocol for RDF

The RDF Data Access Working Group has released a second Working Draft of the
SPARQL <http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-rdf-sparql-protocol-20050527/>
Protocol for RDF. The draft describes RDF data access and transmission of
RDF queries from clients to processors. The protocol is compatible with the
SPARQL query language <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/>  (pronounced
"sparkle") and is designed to convey queries from other RDF query languages
as well.

 

Working Draft: SPARQL Variable binding Results XML Format

The RDF Data Access Working Group has released a second Working Draft of the
SPARQL <http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-rdf-sparql-XMLres-20050527/>  Query
Results XML Format. The SPARQL query language
<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/>  offers developers and end users a
way to write and to consume search results across a wide range of
information such as personal data, social networks and metadata about
digital artifacts like music and images. SPARQL also provides a means of
integration over disparate sources.

 

Working Draft: XHTML 2.0

The HTML Working Group has released the seventh public Working Draft of
XHTML 2.0 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xhtml2-20050527/> . A modularized
language without presentation elements, XHTML 2 takes HTML back to its roots
in document structuring. See the introduction for the differences
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xhtml2-20050527/introduction.html#s_intro>
between XHTML versions 1 and 2. Much of XHTML 2 works in existing browsers.
The draft includes an implementation in RELAX NG <http://relaxng.org/>  with
DTD and XML Schema implementations to follow.
