Mobile Web Best Practices, Content Transformation Guidelines Advance;
W3C Seeks Implementation and Review

   11 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8719

   The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "Mobile Web
   Application Best Practices." The goal of this document is to
   aid the development of rich and dynamic mobile Web
   applications. It collects the most relevant engineering
   practices, promoting those that enable a better user experience
   and warning against those that are considered harmful. W3C
   invites implementers to complete an implementation report
   template. The group also published today a Last Call Working
   Draft of "Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies
   1.0," which provides guidance to Content Transformation
   proxies as to whether and how to transform Web content.
   Comments on the latter document are welcome through 11 March.

W3C Community Invited to Discuss Future Standards for Model-Based
User Interfaces

   12 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8723

   W3C announced today a Workshop on Future Standards for
   Model-Based User Interfaces, 13-14 May 2010 in Rome Italy.
   Participants will examine the challenges facing Web developers
   due to variations in device capabilities, modes of interaction
   and software standards, the need to support assistive
   technologies for accessibility, and the demand for richer user
   interfaces. Discussion will focus on reviewing research on
   model-based design of context- sensitive user interfaces in
   relation to these challenges, and the opportunities for new
   open standards in the area of Model-Based User Interfaces. W3C
   Membership is not required to participate; anyone who satisfies
   the participation requirements may attend as long as space
   permits. Statements of interest are due 2 April. Please see the
   Call for Participation for more information.

RIF Production Rules Dialect Revised; Last Call for Comments

   12 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8721

   During the implementation phase of the Rule Interchange Format
   (RIF), the Working Group discovered a problem with the design
   of the Production Rules Dialect. This problem is addressed with
   a new "Last Call Working Draft" that changes the way actions
   are handled to more closely match existing production rule
   engines. Please send comments and RIF implementation reports to
   public-rif-comments@w3.org. Last Call comments should be sent
   before 5 March. Learn more about the Semantic Web.

Call for Review: XML Entity Definitions for Characters Proposed
Recommendation Published

   11 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8720

   The Math Working Group has published a Proposed Recommendation
   of "XML Entity Definitions for Characters." This document
   presents a completed listing harmonizing the known uses in math
   and science of character entity names that appear throughout
   the XML world and Unicode. This document is the result of years
   of employing entity names on the Web. There were always a few
   named entities used for special characters in HTML, but a flood
   of new names came with the symbols of mathematics. Comments are
   welcome through 11 March. Learn more about the Math Activity.

W3C Welcomes Comments on First Draft of Web Services Event
Descriptions

   10 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8718

   The Web Services Resource Access Working Group has published
   the First Public Working Draft of "Web Services Event
   Descriptions (WS-EventDescriptions)." In the Web Services
   context, there are many use cases in which it is necessary for
   an endpoint to advertise the structure and contents of the
   events that it might generate. For example, a subscriber might
   wish to know the shape of the events that are generated in
   order to properly formulate a filter to limit the number of
   notifications that are transmitted, or to ensure it can
   successfully process the type of events that are transmitted.
   This specification describes a mechanism by which an endpoint
   can advertise the structure and contents of the events it might
   generate. Learn more about the Web Services Activity.
