   29 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9801

   Who is W3C to you? Who should we be?

   As W3C nears its 20th anniversary in 2014 we are conducting a
   research project. We invite you to complete our first public
   survey about the W3C brand. Your responses will help guide
   where we direct our energies as we evolve the W3C brand.

   http://pull.erssurvey.com/W3CT

   The survey, open through 5 May 2013, should take approximately
   15 minutes to complete. Participants who complete the survey
   may enter to win an Apple iPad mini.

   http://pull.erssurvey.com/W3CT

   W3C has retained Salloway and Associates, an independent market
   strategy and research company, to conduct this survey on a
   confidential and professional basis. W3C will receive only
   anonymized data. Please see the survey for the complete privacy
   policy.

   We look forward to hearing from you!

Selectors Level 4 Draft Published

   02 May 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9808

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "Selectors Level 4." Selectors are patterns
   that match against elements in a tree, and as such form one of
   several technologies that can be used to select nodes in an XML
   document. Selectors have been optimized for use with HTML and
   XML, and are designed to be usable in performance-critical
   code. They are a core component of CSS (Cascading Style
   Sheets), which uses Selectors to bind style properties to
   elements in the document. Selectors Level 4 describes the
   selectors that already exist in [SELECT], and further
   introduces new selectors for CSS and other languages that may
   need them. Learn more about the Style Activity.

vCard Ontology Draft Published

   02 May 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9807

   The Semantic Web Interest Group has published a Working Draft
   of "vCard Ontology." The document describes a mapping of the
   vCard specification (RFC6350) to RDF/OWL. The goal is to
   promote the use of vCard for the description of people and
   organisations utilising semantic web techniques and allowing
   compatibility with traditional vCard implementations. Learn
   more about the Semantic Web Activity.

The PROV Family of Documents are W3C Recommendations

   30 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9805

   The Provenance Working Group was chartered to develop a
   framework for interchanging provenance on the Web. The Working
   Group has now published the PROV Family of Documents as W3C
   Recommendations, along with corresponding supporting notes. You
   can find a complete list of the documents in the "PROV Overview
   Note." PROV enables one to represent and interchange
   provenance information using widely available formats such as
   RDF and XML. In addition, it provides definitions for accessing
   provenance information, validating it, and mapping to Dublin
   Core. Learn more about the Semantic Web.

Publishing and Linking on the Web Note Published

   30 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9804

   The Technical Architecture Group has published a Group Note of
   "Publishing and Linking on the Web." The Web borrows familiar
   concepts from physical media (e.g., the notion of a "page") and
   overlays them on top of a networked infrastructure (the
   Internet) and a digital presentation medium (browser software).
   This is a convenient abstraction, but when social or legal
   concepts and frameworks relating documents, publishing and
   speech are applied to the Web, the analogies can be misleading,
   for example, publishing a page on the Web is fundamentally
   different from printing and distributing a page in a magazine
   or book. Learn more about the Technical Architecture Group.

Two Drafts Published by the Tracking Protection Working Group

   30 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9803

   The Tracking Protection Working Group has published two Working
   Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/
     * Tracking Preference Expression (DNT). This specification
       defines the technical mechanisms for expressing a tracking
       preference via the DNT request header field in HTTP, via an
       HTML DOM property readable by embedded scripts, and via
       properties accessible to various user agent plug-in or
       extension APIs. It also defines mechanisms for sites to
       signal whether and how they honor this preference, both in
       the form of a machine-readable tracking status resource at
       a well-known location and via a Tk response header field,
       and a mechanism for allowing the user to approve exceptions
       to DNT as desired.
     * Tracking Compliance and Scope. This specification defines
       the meaning of a Do Not Track (DNT) preference and sets out
       practices for websites to comply with this preference.
