Upcoming Workshop: Digital Marketing

   13 March 2015
   <http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4489>

   W3C announced today the W3C Workshop on Digital Marketing,
   29-30 April 2015, in Tampa, Florida (USA). The event is hosted
   by Nielsen.

   <http://www.w3.org/2015/01/digital-marketing-workshop>

   Digital Marketing and the ecosystem surrounding it are growing
   at an unprecedented pace as consumers take advantage of new
   devices, features, and content on the Web; our core focus. As
   the Open Web Platform and technologies such as HTML5 continue
   to expand and offer new functionalities, brands, interactive
   marketers, content publishers and third party providers are
   calling W3C’s attention to gaps and challenges.

   Our goal is to better understand which changes to the Open Web
   Platform would help improve interoperability, increase
   efficiencies, enable new innovations, and enhance
   communications. Topics of discussion include Security, and
   interaction with security measures; Data-gathering and
   measurement; performance, etc. W3C membership is not required
   to participate. The event is open to all. All participants are
   required to submit a position paper by 6 April 2015.

W3C Invites Implementations of XQuery and XPath Full Text 3.0;
Supporting Requirements and Use Cases Draft Updated

   12 March 2015
   <http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4474>

   The XML Query Working Group and the XSLT Working Group invite
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "XQuery and
   XPath Full Text 3.0." The Full Text specification extends the
   XPath and XQuery languages to support fast and efficient full
   text searches over arbitrarily large collections of documents.
   This release brings the Full Text specification up to date with
   XQuery 3.0 and XPath 3.0; the language itself is unchanged.

   <http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/>
   <http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/CR-xpath-full-text-30-20150312/>

   Both groups also published an updated Working Draft of "XQuery
   and XPath Full Text 3.0 Requirements and Use Cases." This
   document specifies requirements and use cases for Full-Text
   Search for use in XQuery 3.0 and XPath 3.0. The goal of XQuery
   and XPath Full Text 3.0 is to extend XQuery and XPath Full Text
   1.0 with additional functionality in response to requests from
   users and implementors.

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Basic User Interface Module Level 3 (CSS3
   UI)." This specification describes user interface related
   selectors, properties and values that are proposed for CSS
   level 3 to style HTML and XML (including XHTML). It includes
   and extends user interface related features from the selectors,
   properties and values of CSS level 2 revision 1 and Selectors
   specifications. It uses various selectors, properties and
   values to style basic user interface elements in a document.
   CSS is a language for describing the rendering of structured
   documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on paper, in
   speech, etc. Learn more about the Style Activity.
