   help shape its use in mobile Web browsers. Topics may include user
   experience, application development, support in today's devices and
   browsers, and whether needs exist for standardization and best
   practices. Results will be linked from the Workshop page in October.

Update to SPARQL Candidate Recommendation: XML Results Format

   W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of "SPARQL Query Results
   XML Format" to Candidate Recommendation. The "SPARQL Query Language
   for RDF" offers developers and end users a way to write and consume
   search results across a wide range of information and provides a
   means of integration over disparate sources. With this format,
   SPARQL variable binding and boolean results can be expressed in XML.

   Web home page.

A MathML for CSS Profile: Working Draft

   The Math Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of "A
   MathML for CSS profile." This subset of MathML 3.0 can be used to
   capture the structure of mathematical formulas in a way particularly
   suitable for further CSS formatting. Coordinated with ongoing work
   on CSS Level 3, the profile is expected to facilitate adoption of
   MathML in Web browsers and CSS formatters. Visit the Math home page.
