Last Call: CURIE Syntax 1.0

   The XHTML2 Working Group has published the Last Call Working Draft
   of "CURIE Syntax 1.0," which outlines a syntax for expressing URIs
   in a generic, abbreviated syntax ("Compact URI"). The specification
   targets language designers who need a mechanism to permit the use of
   extensible value collections. Any language designer considering the
   use of QNames in attribute values should consider instead using
   CURIEs, since CURIEs are designed for this purpose, while QNames are
   not. Comments are welcome through 10 June. Learn more about the HTML
   Activity.
