W3C Invites Implementations of Widgets 1.0: Packaging and Configuration

   The Web Applications Working Group invites implementation of the
   Candidate Recommendation of "Widgets 1.0: Packaging and
   Configuration." This specification standardizes a packaging format
   for software known as widgets. Widgets are client-side applications
   that are authored using Web standards, but whose content can also be
   embedded into Web documents. The specification relies on PKWare's
   Zip specification as the archive format, XML as a configuration
   document format, and a series of steps that runtimes follow when
   processing and verifying various aspects of a package. The packaging
   format acts as a container for files used by a widget. The Working
   Group plans to develop a test suite during the Candidate
   Recommendation phase. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.


User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 2.0: Updated Working Draft

   The User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has published
   an updated Working Draft of the "User Agent Accessibility Guidelines
   (UAAG) 2.0." UAAG defines how browsers, media players, and other
   "user agents" should support accessibility for people with
   disabilities and work with assistive technologies. Read the
   invitation to review the UAAG 2.0 Working Draft and about the Web
   Accessibility Initiative (WAI).


Flexible Box Layout Module First Draft Published

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published the
   First Public Working Draft of "Flexible Box Layout Module." The
   draft describes a CSS box model optimized for interface design. It
   provides an additional layout system alongside the ones already in
   CSS. This model is based on the box model in the XUL user-interface
   language. Learn more about the Style Activity.


CSS Image Values Module Level 3 First Draft Published

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published the
   First Public Working Draft of "CSS Image Values Module Level 3."
   This CSS Image Values module defines the syntax for image values in
   CSS. Image values can be a single URI to an image, a list of URIs
   denoting a series of fallbacks, sprites (image slices), or
   gradients. Learn more about the Style Activity.
