Hi Fabulous W3C people,

I wish (or rather my boss has asked me to investigate) if there are  
any standards for podcasting technology. I've checked your website  
(which may or may not be the most appropriate place for this query)  
and can't find anything appropriate.  I also checked under 'audio  
technology' as well.  If your website is not the right place for this  
- then please indicate where I should go.

In practical terms I generally apply the 'common sense' approach (yes  
- what is that?  :)  ) of uploading the audio to our website alongside  
a written transcript) i.e. text).  I think this is what my supervisor  
means.  However II think my supervisor wants this supported with an  
official standard.

So...

(a) Is there one produced?

(b)  Where do I go to find this information?

For any morsel you can send my way I'd be truly grateful

Regards
