Abstract

The XHTML Role Attribute defined in this specification allows the author  
to annotate XML Languages with machine-extractable semantic information  
about the purpose of an element. Use cases include accessibility, device  
adaptation, server-side processing, and complex data description. This  
attribute can be integrated into any markup language based upon XHTML  
Modularization [XHTMLMOD].

This document is a Candidate Recommendation of the XHTML Role module. It  
is based upon comments received during the last call period, and also upon  
work done in the definition of [XHTML2]. It is considered mature and  
stable by the working group. A record of how the comments from the last  
call period were addressed is available at

group invites comments on this draft through 28 February 2009. Comments  
should be addressed to www-html-editor@w3.org. All comments sent to that  
address are available in a (public archive). The working group intends to  
submit this document for consideration as a W3C Proposed Recommendation  
after 28 February 2009 having met the following criteria:
At least two markup languages incorporate the attribute defined by this  
module.
At least two interoperable implementations support one or more of those  
languages.
All issues raised during the CR period against this document have received  
formal responses.
