W3C Integrates Math on the Web with MathML 3 Standard

   21 October 2010 | Archive


   W3C announces today an important standard for making
   mathematics on the Web more accessible and international,
   especially for early mathematics education. "MathML 3" is the
   third version of a standard supported in a wide variety of
   applications including Web pages, e-books, equation editors,
   publishing systems, screen readers (that read aloud the
   information on a page) and braille displays, ink input devices,
   e-learning and computational software. MathML 3 is part of
   W3C's Open Web Platform, which includes HTML5, CSS, and SVG.
   "We expect wider deployment of MathML 3.0 will facilitate
   communication of mathematics and science over the Web," said
   Don McClure, Executive Director, American Mathematical Society.

Eight HTML5 Drafts Updated

   25 October 2010 | Archive


   The HTML Working Group published eight documents:

     * Working Drafts of the HTML5 specification, the accompanying
       explanatory document HTML5 differences from HTML4, and the
       related non-normative reference HTML: The Markup Language.
     * Working Drafts of the specifications HTML+RDFa 1.1 and HTML
       Microdata, which define mechanisms for embedding
       machine-readable data in HTML documents, and the
       specification HTML Canvas 2D Context, which defines a 2D
       immediate-mode graphics API for use with the HTML5 <canvas>
     * HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives,
       which is intended to help authors provide useful text
       alternatives for images in HTML documents.
     * Polyglot Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents, which is
       intended to help authors produce XHTML documents that are
       also compatible with non-XML HTML syntax and parsing rules.

Call for Review: Mobile Web Application Best Practices Proposed

   21 October 2010 | Archive


   The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group has published a
   Proposed 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. Comments are welcome through
   19 November. Learn more about the Mobile Web Initiative


XML Processor Profiles Draft Published

   21 October 2010 | Archive


   The XML Processing Model Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "XML processor profiles." This specification defines
   several XML processor profiles, each of which fully determines
   a data model for any given XML document. It is intended as a
   resource for other specifications, which can by a single
   normative reference establish precisely what input processing
   they require. Learn more about the Extensible Markup Language
   (XML) Activity.


Web IDL Draft Published

   21 October 2010 | Archive


   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Web IDL." This document defines an interface
   definition language, Web IDL, that can be used to describe
   interfaces that are intended to be implemented in Web browsers.
   Web IDL is an IDL variant with a number of features that allow
   the behavior of common script objects in the web platform to be
   specified more readily. How interfaces described with Web IDL
   correspond to constructs within ECMAScript and Java execution
   environments is also detailed. Learn more about the Rich Web
   Client Activity.


Progress Events Draft Updated

   19 October 2010 | Archive


   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Progress Events." The Progress Events specification
   defines an abstract event interface that can be used for
   measuring progress, e.g., in the sense of how much of a
   document has loaded. Learn more about the Rich Web Client

       The Multilingual Web - Where Are We?
       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.

       How can Technology help to improve Privacy on the Internet?
       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?
