New Working Group to Refine Web Services Resource Access Specifications

   W3C today launched the Web Services Resource Access Working Group
   with a mission to produce W3C Recommendations for a set of Web
   Services specifications by refining the WS-Transfer,
   WS-ResourceTransfer, WS-Enumeration, WS-MetadataExchange and
   WS-Eventing Member Submissions. The group will address existing
   issues in those specifications, and review implementation experience
   and interoperability feedback from implementers and considering
   composition with other Web services standards. Learn more about the
   Web Services Activity.

W3C Invites Implementations of Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML)
Version 1.1 (Candidate Recommendation)

   The Voice Browser Working Group invites implementation of the
   Candidate Recommendation of "Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML)
   Version 1.1." The Speech Synthesis Markup Language Specification is
   designed to provide a rich, XML-based markup language for assisting
   the generation of synthetic speech in Web and other applications.
   The essential role of the markup language is to provide authors of
   synthesizable content a standard way to control aspects of speech
   such as pronunciation, volume, pitch, rate, etc. across different
   synthesis-capable platforms. See the implementation report plan and
   learn more about the Voice Browser Activity.

Note: Legacy extended IRIs for XML resource identification

   The XML Core Working Group has published the Group Note of "Legacy
   extended IRIs for XML resource identification." For historic
   reasons, some formats have allowed variants of IRIs that are
   somewhat less restricted in syntax, for example XML system
   identifiers and W3C XML Schema anyURIs. This document provides a
   definition and a name (Legacy Extended IRI or LEIRI) for these
   variants for easy reference. These variants have to be used with
   care; they require further processing before being fully
   interchangeable as IRIs. New protocols and formats should not use
   Legacy Extended IRIs. Learn more about the Extensible Markup
   Language (XML) Activity.
