'Architecture of the World Wide Web, Volume One' is a W3C Recommendation

   The World Wide Web Consortium released "Architecture of the World Wide
   Web, Volume One" as a W3C Recommendation. The Web uses relatively
   simple technologies with sufficient scalability, efficiency and utility
   that they have resulted in a remarkable information space of
   interrelated resources, growing across languages, cultures and media.
   This architecture document discusses the core design components of the
   Web in an effort to preserve these properties of the information space
   as its technologies evolve. Read the press release, Member
   testimonials, and visit the TAG home page.


W3C Celebrates Its Tenth Anniversary

   This year, the World Wide Web Consortium celebrates its tenth
   anniversary--ten years of its mission to lead the Web to its full
   potential. On 1 December, W3C Members, Team, invited speakers, and
   international media will gather in Boston, USA to reflect on the
   progress of the Web, W3C's central role in its growth, and the risks
   and opportunities facing the Web during W3C's second decade. "This
   special anniversary brings the opportunity to acknowledge the impact of
   the Web and the W3C's stewardship role," said Tim Berners-Lee, W3C
   Director. "I hope it will also inspire ever more collaboration,
   creativity, and understanding across the globe." Sign the greeting

   manner. "WSDL Binding" defines how the core specification's properties
   are described in the Web Services Description Language (WSDL). "SOAP
   Binding" defines their association to SOAP messages. Read about Web


EMMA Working Draft Updated

   describes markup for describing user input together with annotations
   such as confidence scores, timestamps and input medium. This version
   includes the associated XML schema. Visit the Multimodal Interaction
