XHTML 1.1 and Ruby Annotation Become W3C Recommendations

   31 May 2001: The World Wide Web Consortium released XHTML 1.1 -
   Module-based XHTML and Ruby Annotation as W3C Recommendations. The
   specifications are stable, and have been reviewed by the W3C
   Membership, who favor their adoption by industry. XHTML 1.1 is a
   reformulation of XHTML 1.0 Strict based on XHTML modules, including
   the ruby module. Ruby is a short run of text alongside base text
   typically used in East Asian documents to indicate pronunciation or
   annotation. Read the press release and testimonials.

   XML Schema. Comments may be sent to the author.
