Last Call: XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1

   The XML Core Working Group has published the Last Call Working Draft
   of "XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1." This specification
   defines the XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1, which allows
   elements to be inserted into XML documents in order to create and
   describe links between resources. It uses XML syntax to create
   structures that can describe links similar to the simple
   unidirectional hyperlinks of today's HTML, as well as more
   sophisticated links. Comments are welcome through 16 May. Learn more
   about the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Activity.

Incubator Group Report: W3C SWS Challenge Testbed Incubator Methodology
Report

   The W3C SWS Testbed Incubator Group published their final report:
   SWS Challenge Testbed Incubator Methodology Report. This document
   describes the SWS Testbed XG's Final Report on the best practices
   for a methodology for evaluating the efficacy of various techniques
   for mediation, discovery, and composition of Web Services, such
   techniques including software engineering approaches as well as
   semantic annotations. These best practices are based upon two years
   of experience with five workshops and one year of discussion and
   meetings on this subject by the XG Participants. The publication is
   part of the Incubator Activity, a forum where W3C Members can
   innovate and experiment.

Web Security Context: Experience, Indicators, and Trust Working Draft
Published

   The Web Security Context Working Group has published a Working Draft
   of "Web Security Context: Experience, Indicators, and Trust." This
   specification deals with the trust decisions that users must make
   online, and with ways to support them in making safe and informed
   decisions where possible. In order to achieve that goal, this
   specification includes recommendations on the presentation of
   identity information by Web user agents; on handling errors in
   security protocols in a way that minimizes the trust decisions left
   to users, and induces them toward safe behavior where they have to
   make these decisions; and on data entry interactions that will make
   it easier for users to enter sensitive data into legitimate sites
   than to enter them into illegitimate sites. Learn more about the
   Security Activity.

CURIE Syntax 1.0 Working Draft Published

   The XHTML2 Working Group has published a Working Draft of "CURIE
   Syntax 1.0." The aim of this document is to outline a syntax for
   expressing URIs in a generic, abbreviated syntax. While it has been
   produced in conjunction with the XHTML 2 Working Group, it is not
   specifically targeted at use by XHTML Family Markup Languages. Note
   that the target audience for this document is Language designers,
   not the users of those Languages. Learn more about the HTML
   Activity.

Cool URIs for the Semantic Web Interest Group Note

   The Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest Group has
   published an Interest Group Note " Cool URIs for the Semantic Web."
   The Resource Description Framework (RDF) allows users to describe
   both Web documents and concepts from the real world people,
   organizations, topics, things in a computer-processable way.
   Publishing such descriptions on the Web creates the Semantic Web.
   URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) are very important to the
   Semantic Web, providing both the core of the framework itself and
   the link between RDF and the Web. This document presents guidelines
   for the effective use of URIs in the context of the Semantic Web.
   Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity.
