Interested in Next Steps for RDF? Come to the W3C Workshop!

   20 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8699

   W3C is organizing a Workshop on the Next Steps for RDF around
   June 2010; we will announce the exact dates and location as
   soon as possible. Since its publication in 2004, the "Resource
   Description Framework (RDF)" has become the core architectural
   block of the Semantic Web. The standard is now widely deployed
   in terms of tools and applications. Due to this wide
   deployment, additional R&D activities, and the publication of
   newer standards (e.g., "SPARQL," "OWL," "POWDER," and "SKOS"
   ), a number of issues regarding RDF have come to the fore.
   Workshop articipants will discuss these issues and help
   determine whether it is time for a new version of RDF. W3C
   Membership is not required to participate in the Workshop, but
   each participant must be associated with an accepted position
   paper. The deadline for position papers is 29 March 2010; see
   the Call for Participation for more information. Updates
   (including the exact date and location of the Workshop) will be
   added to the Call for Participation and will be announced on
   the Semantic Web Activity News Blog.

W3C Invites Implementations of W3C XML Schema Definition Language
(XSD): Component Designators

   21 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8703

   The XML Schema Working Group invites implementation of the
   Candidate Recommendation of "W3C XML Schema Definition Language
   (XSD): Component Designators." XML Schema: Component
   Designators defines a scheme for identifying XML Schema
   components as specified by XML Schema Part 1: Structures and
   XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes. Learn more about the Extensible
   Markup Language (XML) Activity.

Updated Draft: Use Cases and Requirements for Ontology and API for
Media Resource 1.0

   21 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8702

   The Media Annotations Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Use Cases and Requirements for Ontology and API for
   Media Resource 1.0." This document specifies use cases and
   requirements as an input for the development of the "Ontology
   for Media Resource 1.0" and the "API for Media Resource 1.0".
   The ontology will be a simple ontology to support
   cross-community data integration of information related to
   media resources on the Web. The API will provide read access
   and potentially write access to media resources, relying on the
   definitions from the ontology. Learn more about the Video in
   the Web Activity.

Last Call: CSS Styling Attributes Level 1

   21 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8701

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Last Call Working Draft of "CSS Styling Attributes Level 1."
   Markup languages such as HTML and SVG provide a styling
   attribute on most elements, to hold a fragment of a style sheet
   that applies to those elements. One of the possible style sheet
   languages is CSS. This draft describes the syntax and
   interpretation of the CSS fragment that can be used in such
   styling attributes. Comments are welcome through 09 February.
   Learn more about the Style Activity.

   The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published the
   First Public Working Draft of "Contacts API." This API
   provides access to the user???s address book from within a
   browser environment. Learn more about JavaScript interfaces

Selectors API Level 2 First Draft Published

   19 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8698

   The Web Applications Working Group has published the First
   Public Working Draft of "Selectors API Level 2." Selectors,
   which are widely used in CSS, are patterns that match against
   elements in a tree structure. The Selectors API specification
   defines methods for retrieving Element nodes from the DOM by
   matching against a group of selectors, and for testing if a
   given element matches a particular selector. It is often
   desirable to perform DOM operations on a specific set of
   elements in a document. These methods simplify the process of
   acquiring and testing specific elements, especially compared
   with the more verbose techniques defined and used in the past.
