W3C Opens Emotion Markup Language Incubator Group

   W3C is pleased to announce the reopening of the Emotion Markup
   Language Incubator Group (XG). The mission of this new instance of
   the XG is to propose a specification draft for an Emotion Markup
   Language, to document it in a way accessible to non-experts, and to
   illustrate its use in conjunction with a number of existing markups.
   Note that this document would not be a standards-track document
   until W3C charters a Working Group to develop it as a W3C
   Recommendation. The XG is sponsored by W3C Members DFKI; Deutsche
   Telekom T-Com; Image, Video and Multimedia Systems Lab; Loquendo,
   S.p.A.; Chinese Academy of Sciences; and SRI International. W3C
   Members may use this form to join the group. Read the final report
   of the original Emotion XG and the Incubator Activity, an initiative
   to foster development of emerging Web-related technologies.

W3C Invites Implementations of XForms 1.1 (Candidate Recommendation)

   The Forms Working Group has published the Candidate Recommendation
   of "XForms 1.1." XForms is an XML application that represents the
   next generation of forms for the Web. An XForms-based Web form
   gathers and processes XML data using an architecture that separates
   presentation, purpose and content. XForms is not a free-standing
   document type, but is intended to be integrated into other markup
   languages, such as XHTML, ODF, or SVG. The Working Group invites
   implementation experience of this technology from the community; see
   also the group's wiki for tracking XForms 1.1 implementations. Learn
   more about the XForms Activity.

XProc: An XML Pipeline Language

   The XML Processing Model Working Group has published a Working Draft
   of "XProc: An XML Pipeline Language." This specification describes
   the syntax and semantics of XProc, a language for describing XML
   pipelines. Pipelines are made up of simple steps which perform
   atomic operations on XML documents and constructs similar to
   conditionals, loops and exception handlers which control which steps
   are executed. Learn more about the Extensible Markup Language (XML)
   Activity.

Summary of Workshop on Advanced Requirements for the Multimodal
Framework

   W3C has published a summary and full minutes of the Workshop on
   W3C's Multimodal Architecture and Interfaces , organized by the
   Multimodal Interaction Working Group in Fujisawa, Japan on 16-17
   November. Participants from 17 organizations generated a list of
   requirements on the current MMI Architecture. The Working Group will
   review the list as a basis for improvements to the "Multimodal
   Framework." Visit the Multimodal Interaction home page.

W3C Seeks Community Support for HTML Design Principles (First Public
Working Draft)

   The HTML Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft
   of " HTML Design Principles." This document describes the set of
   guiding principles used by the HTML Working Group for the
   development of HTML5, expected to define the fifth major revision of
   the core language of the World Wide Web. These design principles are
   an attempt to capture consensus on design approach in the areas of
   compatibility, utility, interoperability, and universal access.

CURIE Syntax 1.0

   The XHTML2 Working Group has published a Working Draft of "CURIE
   Syntax 1.0." The aim of this document is to outline an abbreviated
   syntax for expressing Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs). The
   proposed technology does not target the XHTML Family Markup
   Languages exclusively. The target audience for this document is
   designers of technology (e.g., markup languages), not the users of
   that technology. Learn more about the HTML Activity.

Access Control for Cross-site Requests

   The Web Application Formats Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Access Control for Cross-site Requests." This document
   introduces an "opt-in policy" mechanism whereby people managing a
   resource can declare whether other sites can retrieve it. The
   document also defines a mechanism based on the same policy to allow
   a resource to opt-in to requests using an HTTP method other than
   GET. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.
