Draft Model for Tabular Data and Metadata on the Web, and a Draft
Metadata Vocabulary for Tabular Data Published

   10 July 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3943

   The CSV on the Web Working Group, part of the Data Activity,
   has published two Working Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2013/csvw/
   http://www.w3.org/2013/data/
     * The Model for Tabular Data and Metadata on the Web outlines
       a basic data model, or infoset, for tabular data and
       metadata about that tabular data. The document also
       contains drafts for various methods of locating metadata;
       finally, it also contains some non-normative information
       about a best practice syntax for tabular data and for
       mapping into that data model. The work also contributes to
       the standardisation of CSV syntax by IETF (as a possible
       update of RFC4180).
     * The Metadata Vocabulary for Tabular Data defines a
       vocabulary for metadata that annotates tabular data. This
       can be used to provide metadata at various levels, from
       collections of data from CSV documents and how they relate
       to each other down to individual cells within a table. The
       vocabulary is defined using JSON, in a manner compatible
       with JSON-LD. This document is a First Public Working
       Draft.

   If you wish to make comments regarding these documents, please
   send them to public-csv-wg@w3.org.

Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM)
1.0 Note Published

   10 July 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3941

   "Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology
   (WCAG-EM) 1.0" was published today as a W3C Note 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. WCAG-EM provides guidance for individuals
   and organizations that evaluate web accessibility, and is also
   useful for those that have others evaluate their website. Learn
   more from the WCAG-EM Overview and about the Web Accessibility
   Initiative (WAI).
