W3C Workshop Report on the Electronic Books and the Open Web Platform

   04 March 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9743

   [] W3C today published the report of the workshop eBooks: Great
   Expectations for Web Standards, hosted by O'Reilly TOC on 11-12
   February, 2013, in New York, USA, and sponsored by Pearson.

   http://www.w3.org/2012/08/electronic-books/
   http://www.w3.org/2012/08/electronic-books/rapportebook

   W3C seeks to support the wide adoption of Web technologies in
   digital publishing contexts. Consequently, there is a need for
   the Web and Publishing communities to reinforce cooperation
   around well defined technical issues. This Workshop was a first
   step, bringing together a wide range of stakeholders to share
   their own perspectives, requirements, and ideas to ensure that
   emerging global technology standards meet the needs of the
   Digital Publishing industry. The Workshop has identified a
   number of technical issues where the W3C could and should work
   together in the coming years.

   The Workshop participants began discussions to prioritize lists
   of topics such as presentation, layout, fonts, or
   accessibility. As a next step, the W3C staff will work with
   stakeholders, such as IDPF and BISG, in the digital publishing
   ecosystem to identify opportunities for work related to
   publishing standards that can be launched at W3C.

W3C Workshop Report on Do Not Track and Beyond

   04 March 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9744

   W3C today published the report from the W3C Workshop on Do Not
   Track and Beyond held at UC Berkeley in November 2012. We
   welcomed experts from academia, industry, civil society and
   regulators to discuss the status of the current work of the
   Tracking Protection Working Group on Do Not Track, as well as
   related and future standards initiatives.

   https://www.w3.org/2012/dnt-ws/report
   https://www.w3.org/2012/dnt-ws

   The Workshop reaffirmed the foundational assumption of a
   co-operative approach between the different stakeholders and
   identified a number of widely-shared views. We encourage those
   interested in ongoing work in this area to refer to the
   Tracking Protection Working Group, the Privacy Interest Group
   and the Customer Experience Digital Data Community Group.

   [] W3C has published a new edition of Standards for Web
   Applications on Mobile, an overview of the various technologies
   developed in W3C that increase the power of Web applications,
   particularly in the mobile context.

   http://www.w3.org/Mobile/mobile-web-app-state/

   A deliverable of the webinos project, this edition of the
   document highlights changes since November 2012, including the
   advancement of HTML5 to Candidate Recommendation. This edition
   integrates and highlights technologies identified in the Core
   Mobile Web Platform 2012, a report published by the Core Mobile
   Web Community Group. In addition, key topics now link to
   related materials on WebPlatform Docs or in a W3DevCampus
   on-line training course. The report covers key standards track
   events as well as upcoming work.

Two new Drafts: Public Identifiers for entity resolution in XHTML,
The srcset attribute

   28 February 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9742

   The HTML Working Group has published two First Public Working
   Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/html/wg/
     * Public Identifiers for entity resolution in XHTML. This
       document adds an additional public identifier that should
       be recognized by XHTML user agents and cause the HTML
       character entity definitions to be loaded. Unlike the
       identifiers already listed by the HTML5 specification, the
       identifier added by this extension references the set of
       definitions that is used by HTML.
     * The srcset attribute. When authors adapt their sites for
       high-resolution displays, they often need to be able to use
       different assets representing the same image. We address
       this need for adaptive, bitmapped content images by adding
       a srcset attribute to the img element.

Call for Review: Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation
Methodology (WCAG-EM)

   26 February 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9740

   An updated Working Draft of "Website Accessibility Conformance
   Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) 1.0" was published today by
   the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG
   WG) and Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group (ERT WG),
   through the joint WCAG 2.0 Evaluation Methodology Task Force (
   Eval TF ). WCAG-EM describes an approach for evaluating how
   websites, including web applications and websites for mobile
   devices, conform to WCAG 2.0. Learn more from the WCAG-EM
   Overview and about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Two Drafts Published: The picture element, and Use Cases and
Requirements for Standardizing Responsive Images

   26 February 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9739

   The HTML Working Group has published two First Public Working
   Drafts today. Both documents were developed in collaboration
   with the Responsive Images Community Group.

   http://www.w3.org/html/wg/
   http://www.w3.org/community/respimg/
     * The picture element. The picture element is an image
       container whose source content is determined by one or more
       CSS media queries.
     * Use Cases and Requirements for Standardizing Responsive
       Images. This document captures the use cases and
       requirements for standardizing a solution for responsive
       images. The use cases and requirements were gathered with
       consultation with HTML Working Group and WHATWG
       participants, RICG group members, and the general public.

   Groups.
