W3C MobileOK To Help Make Web Sites Mobile Friendly

   Today, W3C provides new means for people to create and find mobile
   friendly content. W3C invites Web authors to run the alpha release
   of the W3C mobileOK checker and make their content work on a broad
   range of mobile devices. The checker runs the tests defined in the
   "W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0" Candidate Recommendation. Read the
   press release and testimonials, and come see W3C at Mobile Internet
   World in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). (Permalink)

Three SPARQL Proposed Recommendations: SPARQL Query Language for RDF;
Query Results XML Format; Protocol for RDF

   The RDF Data Access Working Group has published three SPARQL
   Proposed Recommendations: "SPARQL Query Language for RDF," "SPARQL
   Query Results XML Format," and "SPARQL Protocol for RDF." The
   first specification defines the syntax and semantics of the SPARQL
   query language for RDF. SPARQL can be used to express queries across
   diverse data sources, whether the data is stored natively as RDF or
   viewed as RDF via middleware. The results of SPARQL queries can be
   results sets or RDF graphs; the second specification defines an XML
   format for the variable binding and boolean results formats. The
   third specification uses "WSDL 2.0" to describe an HTTP protocol for
   conveying SPARQL queries to an SPARQL query processing service and
   returning the query results to the party that made the request.
   Comments are welcome through 10 December. Learn more about the
   Semantic Web Activity.

Web Services Policy 1.5 Notes: Primer; Guidelines for Policy Assertion
Authors

   The Web Services Policy Working Group has published two Group Notes:
   "Web Services Policy 1.5 - Primer" and "Web Services Policy 1.5 -
   Guidelines for Policy Assertion Authors." The former introduces the
   Web Services Policy language with examples. The latter explains how
   to use the relevant specifications to maximize interoperability.

W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0 Advances to Candidate Recommendation

   The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group has published the
   Candidate Recommendation of "W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0." This
   document defines the tests that provide the basis for making a claim
   of W3C mobileOK Basic conformance and are based on W3C "Mobile Web
   Best Practices." You are invited to use the alpha version of the
   W3C mobileOK Checker to test your content. Read the press release
   and learn more about the Mobile Web Initiative Activity.

W3C Community Convenes at TPAC 2007 to Discuss Web Future

   Authors of the next version of HTML mix it up with Semantic Web
   developers, security experts, Web accessibility advocates, and the
   media on the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts
   (USA). Over 400 experts from around the world will participate in a
   compelling Plenary Day Program (TPAC) where they will address issues
   shaping the future of the Web. The program includes a panel on the
   growing relationships between W3C and the at-large developer
   community, the challenges HTML5 and XHTML2 propose to solve, and
   W3C's emerging vision of what's needed for video on the Web. The day
   culminates with a talk by W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee: "Cracks and
   Mortar", a review of the Web to date and a close look at the gaps
   for signs of both wear and opportunity. Press are invited to the
   event; see the press release and contact w3t-pr@w3.org.
