SMIL 2.0 Second Edition Is a W3C Recommendation

  The World Wide Web Consortium released the "Synchronized Multimedia
  Integration Language (SMIL 2.0) Second Edition" as a W3C

  readers. SMIL (pronounced "smile") puts animation on a time line,
  allows composition of multiple animations, and describes animation
  elements for any XML-based host language. Visit the Synchronized
