Streams API, HTML Templates Drafts Published

   14 February 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9722

   The Web Applications Working Group has published two First
   Public Working Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/
     * Streams API, which provides an API for representing binary
       data in web applications as a Stream object, as well as
       programmatically building and reading its contents. This
       specification defines objects to be used within threaded
       web applications for the synchronous reading of a Stream.
       This API is designed to be used in conjunction with other
       APIs and elements on the web platform, notably: File,
       XMLHttpRequest, postMessage, and Web Workers.
     * HTML Templates, which describes a method for declaring
       inert DOM subtrees in HTML and manipulating them to
       instantiate document fragments with identical contents.

Using WAI-ARIA in HTML Draft Published

   14 February 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9721

   The HTML Working Group has published the First Public Working
   Draft of "Using WAI-ARIA in HTML." This document is a
   practical guide for developers on how to add accessibility
   information to HTML elements using the Accessible Rich Internet
   Applications specification [WAI-ARIA], which defines a way to
   make Web content and Web applications more accessible to people
   with disabilities. This document demonstrates how to use
   WAI-ARIA in [HTML5], which especially helps with dynamic
   content and advanced user interface controls developed with
   Ajax, HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies. Learn more
   about the HTML Activity.

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published
   two Working Drafts today:

       font properties are specified and how font resources are
