Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0: Working Draft

   The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines Working Group published
   updated Working Drafts of "Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines
   2.0" and "Implementation Techniques for ATAG 2.0." ATAG helps
   developers design tools that are accessible so that people with
   disabilities can use the tools, and so that the tools help produce
   accessible Web content. Read the invitation to review the updated
   ATAG 2.0 Working Drafts and learn more about the Web Accessibility


Note: Web Security Experience, Indicators and Trust: Scope and Use

   The Web Security Context Working Group has published the Group Note
   "Web Security Experience, Indicators and Trust: Scope and Use Cases"
   . The Working Group is chartered to recommend user interfaces that
   help users make trust decisions on the Web. This Note explains the
   group's technical aims (complementing the group charter), what
   technologies may be used to achieve the group's mission, and how
   proposals will be evaluated. This Note also includes an initial
   collection of use cases that the group expects will drive its
   technical work. Learn more about the Security Activity.

   discuss current practices and future direction on "Video on the Web"
   in Japan. All sessions will be held in Japanese (except Philippe's
   talk), and one-by-one interpretation between English and Japanese

RDB2RDF Incubator Group to Study Mapping Relational Data into RDF

   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the RDB2RDF Incubator
   Group, sponsored by W3C Members Oracle, HP, PartnersHealthcare, and
   OpenLink Software. The mission of this Incubator Group is twofold:
   (1) to examine and classify existing approaches to mapping
   relational data into RDF and assess whether standardization is
   possible and/or necessary in this area, and (2) to examine and
   classify existing approaches to mapping OWL classes to Relational
   data, or, more accurately, SQL queries, moving towards the goal of
   defining a standard in this area. See the charter for more
   information. Read more about the Incubator Activity, an initiative
   to foster development of emerging Web-related technologies.
