Defining N-ary Relations on the Semantic Web

   The Semantic Web Best Practices and Deployment (SWBPD) Working Group
   has released the First Public Working Draft of "Defining N-ary
   Relations on the Semantic Web: Use With Individuals." In Semantic Web
   languages like RDF and OWL, a property links two individuals or an
   individual and a value. This draft presents patterns and considerations
   for representing relations between more than two individuals. Comments
   are welcome. Visit the Semantic Web home page.


Representing Classes As Property Values on the Semantic Web

   The Semantic Web Best Practices and Deployment (SWBPD) Working Group
   has released the First Public Working Draft of "Representing Classes As
   Property Values on the Semantic Web." Comments are welcome. The draft
   examines approaches to using classes as property values in OWL DL.
   OWL DL supports users of the OWL Web Ontology Language who want
   computational completeness and decidability. Visit the Semantic Web
   home page.


Working Draft: Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P) 1.1

   The P3P Specification Working Group has released an updated Working
   Draft of the "Platform for Privacy Preferences 1.1 (P3P 1.1)." P3P
   simplifies and automates the process of reading Web site privacy
   policies, promoting trust and confidence in the Web. Version 1.1 has
   new extension and binding mechanisms based on suggestions from W3C
   workshops and the privacy community. Read about privacy and P3P.


Working Drafts: XML Schema 1.1

   The XML Schema Working Group has released the First Public Working
   Draft of XML Schema 1.1 in two parts: "Part 1: Structures" and "Part 2:
   Datatypes." The drafts include change logs from the XML Schema 1.0
   language and are based on version 1.1 requirements. XML schemas define
   shared markup vocabularies, the structure of XML documents which use
   those vocabularies, and provide hooks to associate semantics with them.


Working Drafts: XQuery, XPath and XSLT

   The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group have released
   five updated Working Drafts. Comments on all of these documents are

   * XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language
   * XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0
   * XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model
   * XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators
   * XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization

Visit the XML home page.

Working Draft: XHTML 2.0

   The HTML Working Group has released the sixth public Working Draft of
   "XHTML 2.0." A modularized language without presentation elements,
   XHTML 2 takes HTML back to its roots in document structuring. The draft
   includes an early implementation of XHTML 2.0 in RELAX NG. Comments are
   welcome. Visit the HTML home page.


HTML and XHTML FAQ, Introduction to XML Events Published

   The HTML Working Group has released two publications. "HTML and XHTML
   Frequently Answered Questions" is written for Web content authors and
   designers. "XML Events for HTML Authors" introduces XML Events and its
   advantages over the "onclick" style of event handling. Visit the HTML
   home page.
