Dear All,

I'm pleased to inform you that our Submission request on SMIL 2.0
Extension[1] has been acknowledged and published by W3C[2].

This submission is a proposal for resuming SYMM Working Group to improve
SMIL 2.0 Specification.

Originally SMIL was designed for describing interactive multimedia on
the Web. However, this proposal intends to seek out the possibility of
SMIL for professional multimedia authoring. Introducing SMIL-based
content authoring into professional multimedia production is also
expected to enhance the possibility of SMIL-based contents on the Web.

Depicting a number of requirements for professional multimedia authoring,
possible solutions are proposed by improving existing function modules
and appending additional function modules. Lightweight profiles are also
important to keep conformance between wide variety of authoring

I believe some of you on this ML already familiar with this because
originally I made a presentation of this idea at SMIL Europe 2003 in
February.  Now I would like to call your attention on this ML to our

We are still making continuing efforts to introduce SMIL-based XML
language to multimedia authoring systems.  That is expected not only to
change professional content production and content delivery, but also
expand the market of SMIL application.

I would like to encourage those who are interested in developing the
future possibility of SMIL to be involved in the discussion and future
working of SMIL.

I will be so glad to have your comments, suggestions and any interests.

Best regards,
