W3C Extends HTML Working Charter: HTML5 Last Call in May 2011 and
Recommendation in 2014

   14 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9015

   [] W3C extends today the charter of the HTML Working Group,
   reaffirming the commitment for "HTML5" to reach Last Call in
   May 2011, and announcing plans to reach Recommendation by 2014.
   "Even as innovation continues, advancing HTML5 to
   Recommendation provides the entire Web ecosystem with a stable,
   tested, interoperable specification," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO.
   W3C is developing a comprehensive test suite to help achieve
   broad interoperability for the full specification. Stable
   specifications are useful targets for interoperability at the
   same time that innovation never ceases. Therefore, to fulfill
   the W3C HTML Working Group's mission, W3C Director Tim
   Berners-Lee encourages the participants to begin discussion of
   requirements for future versions of HTML after HTML5 reaches
   Last Call. Read more in the press release and learn more about
   HTML.

CSS Image Values and Replaced Content Module Level 3 Draft Published

   17 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9018

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Image Values and Replaced Content Module
   Level 3." This CSS Image Values and Replaced Content module
   has two parts. First, it defines the syntax for image values in
   CSS. image values can be a single URI to an image, a list of
   URIs denoting a series of fallbacks, a reference to an element
   in the document, or gradients. Second, it defines properties
   used to control the interaction of replaced content and the CSS
   layout algorithms. These properties can affect the used image
   resolution for bitmaps, the replaced object's orientation, and
   whether and how to preserve the object's aspect ratio. Learn
   more about the Style Activity.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) Authorized
Translations Now in Six Languages

   16 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9017

   Today two more Authorized Translations of WCAG 2.0 were
   published, bringing the total to six languages. These were
   developed through the Policy for Authorized W3C Translations
   and they can be used for official purposes. W3C encourages
   translation of specifications and resources into all languages;
   see W3C Translations. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
   particularly encourages the development of W3C Authorized
   Translations of WCAG 2.0 and other technical specifications to
   facilitate their adoption and implementation internationally;
   see Translating WAI Documents. To find out if WCAG is available
   in your language, see the WCAG 2.0 Translations list, which
   also lists unofficial translations. Additional perspectives are
   in the "WCAG 2.0 in your mother tongue" blog post. Read about
   the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

W3C Invites Implementations of CSS Backgrounds and Borders Module
Level 3; Updates Text Level 3

   15 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9016

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "CSS
   Backgrounds and Borders Module Level 3," which contains the
   features of CSS Level 3 relating to borders and backgrounds.
   The main extensions compared to CSS Level 2 are borders
   consisting of images, boxes with multiple backgrounds, boxes
   with rounded corners and boxes with shadows. The Working Group
   also updated a Working Draft of "CSS Text Level 3," which
   defines properties for text manipulation and specifies their
   processing model. It covers line breaking, justification and
   alignment, white space handling, text decoration and text
   transformation. Learn more about the CSS Test Suite and the W3C
   Style Activity.

       <p>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, Italy.</p>
