First Draft of CSS Device Adaptation Published

   15 September 2011 | Archive


   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published
   the First Public Working Draft of "CSS Device Adaptation."
   This specification provides a way for an author to specify, in
   CSS, the size, zoom factor, and orientation of the viewport
   that is used as the base for the initial containing block. The
   goal of this specification is to make it easier to design
   across devices with different viewport sizes. Learn more about
   the Style Activity.

   15 September 2011 | Archive


   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "DOM4." DOM4 defines the event and document model the
   Web platform uses. The DOM is a language- and platform neutral
   interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically
   access and update the content and structure of documents. Learn
   more about the Rich Web Client Activity.


Battery Status Events Draft Published

   15 September 2011 | Archive


   The Device APIs Working Group has published a Working Draft of

   13 September 2011 | Archive


   The Web Events Working Group has published a Last Call Working
   Draft of "Touch Events version 1." The Touch Events

   one or more points of contact with a touch-sensitive surface,
   and changes of those points with respect to the surface and any
   DOM elements displayed upon it (e.g. for touch screens) or
   associated with it (e.g. for drawing tablets without displays).

       (Third) W3C Web and TV Workshop
       Hollywood, California
       Hosted and Sponsored by Comcast
       Following the success of its regional workshops in Tokyo,
       Japan and Berlin, Germany, the W3C will host a third
       workshop on Web and TV convergence in Hollywood, California
       on 19-20 September, 2011. In the previous two workshops,
       participants identified opportunities for convergence of
       Web and TV infrastructure and began identifying technical
       challenges. This third workshop will continue these
       efforts, with a particular focus on the needs of content
       creators and distributors.

       W3C Workshop on Data and Services Integration
       Bedford, MA, USA
       Hosted by MITRE
       Integration of heterogeneous data and services has always
       been a concern for creators and managers of services. With
       the emergence of the Web, the need for reusing data and
       services has become even stronger as the number of
       available services has grown. Different services stacks now
       exist from Web Services to Cloud-based services.
       The goal of this Workshop is to bring together people with
       different ways of looking at the issues left unsolved by
       the existing stacks, to investigate the possible paths to
       help bridging services built using different paradigms, and
       to identify points where standardization would help
       integration of services and data.

       W3C Workshop on The Future of Off-line Web Applications
       Redwood City, CA, USA
       Hosted by Vodafone
       Off-line use of Web applications is one of the key missing
       elements from the Web platform that application developers
       require. The current fragmentation in this solution space
       is creating confusion among would-be WebApp developers and
       organizations who would otherwise invest in the Open Web
       Platform. This workshop will examine requirements that can
       be derived from the implementor and developer experiences,
       with the goal of informing future standardization efforts.
