Last Call: Navigation Timing

   11 January 2011 | Archive


   The Web Performance Working Group has published a Last Call
   Working Draft of "Navigation Timing." User latency is an
   important quality benchmark for Web Applications. While
   JavaScript-based mechanisms can provide comprehensive
   instrumentation for user latency measurements within an
   application, in many cases, they are unable to provide a
   complete end-to-end latency picture. To address the need for
   complete information on user experience, this document
   introduces the PerformanceTiming interfaces. This interface
   allows JavaScript mechanisms to provide complete client-side
   latency measurements within applications. Comments are welcome
   through 08 February. Learn more about the Rich Web Client


Eight HTML5 Drafts Updated

   14 January 2011 | 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.

W3C Launches WebID Incubator Group

   14 January 2011 | Archive


   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the WebID Incubator
   Group, whose mission is to further advance for full
   standardization the WebID protocol, an authentication protocol
   that uses the SSL/TLS layer for user identification by tying
   the client to a profile document on the Web through placing a
   URI in a certificate. It is a first step to a fully
   standard-based browser authentication experience, but not
   limited to browser based authentication: peer to peer server
   authentication will work just as well. The Incubator Group
   intends to pursue work that has been evolving since 2008, grow
   the number of interested parties from the Social Web, security
   and browser communities, and integrate their feedback. The
   following W3C Members have sponsored the charter for this
   group: The Apache Software Foundation, DERI Galway, Garlik,
   INRIA, Nokia, OpenLink Software, Talis, Telecom Italia SpA,
   Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Read more about the Incubator
   Activity, an initiative to foster development of emerging
   Web-related technologies. Incubator Activity work is not on the
   W3C standards track but in many cases serves as a starting
   point for a future Working Group.


W3C Announces Workshop to Bring Content to the Multilingual Web

   13 January 2011 | Archive


   [] W3C announces the Content on the Multilingual Web Workshop,
   to take place 4-5 April 2011 in Pisa, Italy. Workshop
   participants will discuss currently available best practices
   and standards that help content creators, localizers, language
   technology developers, browser makers, and others meet the
   challenges of the multilingual Web. The Workshop also provides
   opportunities for networking that bring together the various
   communities involved in enabling the multilingual Web. This is
   the second of four Workshops being planned by W3C over the next
   two years as part of the MultilingualWeb European Project and
   is hosted by the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche.
   Participation is free and open to anyone. However, space is
   limited and participants are advised to register as soon as
   possible. People wishing to speak should submit an outline of
   their proposed talk with their registration form. The deadline
   for speaker proposals is 1 March. For more information, see the
   call for participation. Learn more about W3C's
   Internationalization Activity.


W3C Invites Implementations of Ink Markup Language (InkML)

   11 January 2011 | Archive


   The W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "Ink Markup
   Language (InkML)." This document describes the syntax and
   semantics for the Ink Markup Language, a data format for
   representing ink entered with an electronic pen or stylus. The
   markup allows for the input and processing of handwriting,
   gestures, sketches, music and other notational languages in
   applications. It provides a common format for the exchange of
   ink data between components such as handwriting and gesture
   recognizers, signature verifiers, and other ink-aware modules.
   See the group's implementation report plan. Learn more about
   the Multimodal Interaction Activity.

       W3C Web and TV Workshop
       Berlin, Germany
       Hosted by Fraunhofer-Fokus
       The IT industry is building the future Web platform at W3C.
       HTML5, CSS, SVG, and other open global standards for Web
       technology are starting to be deployed in browsers, and the
       Web community is enthusiastic about host of new features
       such as location-based services. W3C is organizing this
       workshop to bring the television industry and other
       producers of consumer electronics into the discussion.

     * 2011-04-04 ( 4 APR) – 2011-04-05 ( 5 APR)
       Content on the Multilingual Web
       Pisa, Italy
       Hosted jointly by the Istituto di Informatica e Telematica
       and Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, Consiglio
       Nazionale delle Ricerche.
       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. Following the highly successful first
       event in Madrid, this second workshop will be held in Pisa,
