W3C Invites Implementations of RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing
(Candidate Recommendation); Primer Updated

   The Semantic Web Deployment Working Group and XHTML2 Working Group
   have published a Candidate Recommendation of "RDFa in XHTML: Syntax
   and Processing." Web documents contain significant amounts of
   structured data, which is largely unavailable to tools and
   applications. When publishers can express this data more completely,
   and when tools can read it, a new world of user functionality
   becomes available, letting users transfer structured data between
   applications and web sites, and allowing browsing applications to
   improve the user experience. RDFa is a specification for attributes
   to be used with languages such as HTML and XHTML to express
   structured data. See the groups' RDFa implementation report. The
   Working Groups also updated the companion document "RDFa Primer."

Last Call: W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 (Structures,
Datatypes)

   The XML Schema Working Group has published Last Call Working Drafts
   of "W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 Part 1: Structures"
   and " Part 2: Datatypes." The former specifies the XML Schema
   Definition Language, which offers facilities for describing the
   structure and constraining the contents of XML documents, including
   those which exploit the XML Namespace facility. The latter defines
   facilities for defining datatypes to be used in XML Schemas as well
   as other XML specifications. Comments are welcome through 12
   September. Learn more about the Extensible Markup Language (XML)
   Activity.

Last Call: Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) Version 1.1

   The Voice Browser Working Group has released the Last Call Working
   Draft of "Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) Version 1.1."
   SSML provides a rich, XML-based markup language for assisting the
   generation of synthetic speech in Web and other applications. SSML
   1.1 improves on W3C's "SSML 1.0 Recommendation" by adding support
   for more conventions and practices of the world's languages
   including Asian, Eastern European, and Middle Eastern languages.
   Comments are welcome through 20 July. See the "list of changes" in
   this draft and learn more about W3C's Voice Browser Activity.
