   [] W3C today named Dr. Jeffrey Jaffe its new Chief Executive
   Officer. "Web technologies continue to be the vehicle for every
   industry to incorporate the rapid pace of change into their way
   of doing business," said Dr. Jaffe. "I'm excited to join W3C at
   this time of increased innovation, since W3C is the place where
   the industry comes together to set standards for the Web in an
   open and collaborative fashion." As W3C CEO, Dr. Jaffe will
   work with Director Tim Berners-Lee, staff, Membership, and the
   public to evolve and communicate W3C's organizational vision.
   The CEO is responsible for W3C's global operations, for
   maintaining the interests of all of the W3C’s stakeholders, and
   for sustaining a culture of cooperation and transparency, so
   that W3C continues to be the leading forum for the technical
   development and stewardship of the Web. Read the CEO Blog and

Seven Documents Related to HTML Published

   05 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8735

   W3C published today seven documents related to HTML:

     * HTML 5 and HTML5 differences from HTML4. In addition, some
       content that was part of the HTML 5 specification has been
       published in two new standalone drafts: HTML Canvas 2D
       Context and HTML Microdata.
     * HTML: The Markup Language, a first draft. This document
       describes the HTML markup language and provides details
       necessary for producers of HTML content to create documents
       that conform to the language. By design, it does not define
       related APIs, nor attempt to specify how consumers of HTML
       content are meant to process documents, nor attempt to be a
       tutorial or "how to" authoring guide.
     * HTML+RDFa, which defines rules and guidelines for adapting
       the RDF in XHTML: Syntax and Processing (RDFa)
       specification for use in the HTML5 and XHTML5 members of
       the HTML family.
     * Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML, a first draft.
       Authoring a web app that needs to support both
       right-to-left and left-to-right interfaces, or to take as
       input and display both left-to-right and right-to-left
       data, usually presents a number of challenges that make it
       an especially laborious and bug-prone task. Some of these
       are due to browser bugs, but some can be traced to a gap in
       the specification of the bidirectional aspects of a given
       HTML feature. And some of these challenges could be greatly
       simplified by adding a few strategically placed new HTML
       features. This document proposes fixes for some of the most
       repetitive pain points.

   All documents were published by the HTML Working Group except
   the last one, published by the Internationalization Core
   Working Group.

Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) 3.0 Draft Published

   05 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8734

   The Voice Browser Working Group has published a Working Draft
   of "Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) 3.0." This
   document specifies VoiceXML 3.0, a modular XML language for
   creating interactive media dialogs that feature synthesized
   speech, recognition of spoken and DTMF key input, telephony,
   mixed initiative conversations, and recording and presentation
   of a variety of media formats including digitized audio, and
   digitized video. See the "diff-marked version" of changes since
   the previous draft, and learn more about the Voice Browser
   Activity.

Security Drafts Update: XML Signature Syntax and Processing 2.0;
Canonical XML Version 2.0

   05 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8733

   The XML Security Working Group has published two Working
   Drafts: "XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0" and
   "Canonical XML Version 2.0." The first specifies XML syntax
   and processing rules for creating and representing digital
   signatures. XML Signatures can be applied to any digital
   content (data object), including XML. The second is a major
   rewrite of Canonical XML Version 1.1 to address issues around
   performance, streaming, hardware implementation, robustness,
   minimizing attack surface, determining what is signed and more.
   It also incorporates an update to Exclusive Canonicalization,
   effectively a 2.0 version, as well. Learn more about the
   Security Activity.
