Working Drafts: XML Binary Characterization

  The XML Binary Characterization Working Group has released the First
  Public Working Draft of "XML Binary Characterization Measurement
  Methodologies" and updates to "XML Binary Characterization Use Cases"
  and "XML Binary Characterization Properties." The drafts will help to
  decide if standardized and optimized serialization can be used to
  improve the generation, parsing, transmission and storage of XML-based
  data. Visit the XML home page.


Working Drafts: XML Schema 1.1

  The XML Schema Working Group has released updated Working Drafts of XML
  Schema 1.1: "Part 1: Structures" and "Part 2: Datatypes." Please see
  the status section of each document for changes since the First Public
  Working Drafts and from the XML Schema 1.0 language. XML schemas define
  shared markup vocabularies, the structure of XML documents which use
  those vocabularies, and provide hooks to associate semantics with them.
  Visit the XML home page.


Working Draft: Specifying the Language of XHTML and HTML Content

  The Internationalization GEO (Guidelines, Education & Outreach)
  Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of "Specifying
  the Language of Content." Part of a series designed for authors, the
  document is an aid to specifying the language of content for an
  international audience. Comments are welcome. Visit the
  Internationalization home page.
