xml:id Is a W3C Candidate Recommendation

  W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of "xml:id Version 1.0" to
  Candidate Recommendation. The specification introduces a predefined
  attribute name that can always be treated as an ID and hence can always
  be recognized. Comments are invited through 10 March. Visit the XML
  home page.


Last Call: SMIL 2.1

  The SYMM Working Group has released the First Public Working Draft of
  "Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL 2.1)" as a Last
  Call Working Draft. Comments are welcome through 25 February. SMIL
  (pronounced "smile") puts animation on a time line, allows composition
  of multiple animations, and describes animation elements for any
  XML-based host language. Version 2.1 extends SMIL 2.0 and supports
  enhanced interactive multimedia presentations, reuse of SMIL syntax and
  semantics, and new mobile profiles. Visit the Synchronized Multimedia
  home page.


Working Group Note: Extending XLink 1.0

  The XML Core Working Group has released "Extending XLink 1.0" as a

  incorporated into an XLink Version 1.1 specification to address
  usability, dependence on annotations provided by external grammars,
  and interoperability. The Working Group plans no updates to this
  Note. Visit the XML home page.
