W3C Workshop on Binary Interchange of XML: Report and Minutes

   The report and minutes have been published from the W3C Workshop on
   Binary Interchange of XML Information Item Sets held in Santa Clara,
   CA, USA on 24-26 September. All of the more than 40 position papers
   are publicly available. The workshop concluded that research is
   needed before W3C would produce any specifications in this area, and
   recommended that a Working Group be proposed to the W3C Membership.
   W3C thanks host Sun Microsystems, and all 60 attendees for their
   participation. Visit the XML home page.


Working Draft: Inaccessibility of Visually-Oriented Anti-Robot Tests

   The WAI Protocols and Formats Working Group has released the first

   image pose problems for those who are blind, have low vision, or have
   a learning disability such as dyslexia. The draft examines ways for
   systems to test for human users while preserving access for users
   with disabilities. Comments are welcome. Read about the Web
   Accessibility Initiative.
