XML Schema 1.1 Structures: Working Draft

  The XML Schema Working Group has released an updated Working Draft
  of "XML Schema 1.1 Part 1: Structures." XML schemas define shared
  markup vocabularies, the structure of XML documents which use those
  vocabularies, and provide hooks to associate semantics with them.
  Simplifications and changes in this draft are to sections on rules for
  checking validity, "all" groups, the PSVI, conformance, fallback for
  lax validation, particles and wildcards, among other revisions. Visit
  the XML home page.


CSS Module for Namespaces Updated

  The CSS Working Group has released an updated Working Draft of "CSS
  Module: Namespaces." The @namespace rule is used for declaring the
  default namespace and for binding namespaces to namespace prefixes.
  A syntax is defined that other specifications can adopt for using
  those prefixes in namespace-qualified names. Visit the CSS home
