Updated Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
2.0

   14 October 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8930

   The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group today
   published updates of two Notes that accompany WCAG 2.0:
   "Techniques for WCAG 2.0" and "Understanding WCAG 2.0." (This
   is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document.) To
   learn more about these updates and about contributing to future
   updates, see the New and Improved WCAG 2.0 Techniques blog
   post. Read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

W3C Updates Five SPARQL 1.1 Drafts

   14 October 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8928

   The SPARQL Working Group has published updated drafts of the
   following SPARQL 1.1 documents. SPARQL is a set of
   specfications related to querying a web of linked data. Learn
   more about the Semantic Web.

   http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/wiki/Main_Page
   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/
     * SPARQL 1.1 Query adds support for aggregates, subqueries,
       projected expressions, and negation to the SPARQL query
       language.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Update defines an update language for RDF
       graphs.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Service Description defines a vocabulary and
       discovery mechanism for describing the capabilities of a
       SPARQL endpoint.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Uniform HTTP Protocol for Managing RDF Graphs
       describes the use of the HTTP protocol for managing named
       RDF graphs on an HTTP server.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Entailment Regimes defines conditions under
       which SPARQL queries can be used with entailment regimes
       such as RDF, RDF Schema, OWL, or RIF.

W3C Invites Implementations of CSS Style Attributes

   14 October 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8927

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "CSS Style
   Attributes." Markup languages such as HTML and SVG provide a
   style attribute on most elements, to hold inline style
   information 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
   style attributes. Learn more about the Style Activity.

Workshops

     * 2010-10-26 (26 OCT) – 2010-10-27 (27 OCT)
       The Multilingual Web - Where Are We?
       http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/madrid/cfp
       Madrid, Spain
       Hosted by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
       Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication
       in all walks of life. As the share of English web pages
       decreases and that of other languages increases, it is
       vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the
       World Wide Web.
       The MultilingualWeb project is looking at best practices
       and standards related to all aspects of creating,
       localizing and deploying the Web multilingually. The
       project aims to raise the visibility of existing best
       practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle
       for this is a series of four events which are planned for
       the coming two years. As the first of the four events, this
       workshop will introduce and review currently available best
       practices and standards aimed at helping content creators,
       localizers, tools developers, and others meet the
       challenges of the multilingual Web.
     * 2010-12-08 ( 8 DEC) – 2010-12-09 ( 9 DEC)
       How can Technology help to improve Privacy on the Internet?
       http://www.iab.org/about/workshops/privacy/
       Cambridge, MA, USA
       Jointly organized by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB),
       Internet Society (ISOC), MIT, and W3C
       Who we are (e.g. our thoughts, dreams, feelings, DNA
       sequence), what we own (such as financial property), what
       we have experienced and how we behave
       (audio/visual/olfactory transcripts), and how we can be
       reached (location, endpoint identifiers) are among the most
       personal pieces of information about us. More and more of
       this information is being digitized and made available
       electronically. The question for us therefore is: How can
       we ensure that architectures and technologies for the
       Internet, including the World Wide Web, are developed in a
       way that respects users’ privacy?
