   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the XML Security Working
   Group, whose mission is to evaluate and act on recommendations from

   regarding next steps for XML Security specifications. The group's
   deliverables include new work on XML Signature Syntax and Processing
   and XML Encryption Syntax and Processing, as well as maintenance of
   related specifications. Frederick Hirsch (Nokia) will Chair the

W3C Invites Implementations of CSS Namespaces Module (Candidate
Recommendation)

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published the
   Candidate Recommendation of "CSS Namespaces Module." This CSS
   Namespaces module defines the syntax for using namespaces in CSS. It
   defines the @namespace rule for declaring the default namespace and
   binding namespaces to namespace prefixes, and it also defines a
   syntax that other specifications can adopt for using those prefixes
   in namespace-qualified names. Learn more about the Style Activity.

Progress Events 1.0

   The Web API Working Group has published a Working Draft of "Progress
   Events 1.0."This document describes event types that can be used
   for monitoring the progress of an operation. It is primarily
   intended for contexts such as data transfer operations specified by
   "XMLHTTPRequest," or "Media Access Events." Learn more about the
   Rich Web Client Activity.
