 > Abstract
 >
 > This document specifies the third version of the Synchronized Multimedia
 > Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced "smile"). SMIL 3.0 has the
 > following design goals:
 >
 >       * Define an XML-based language that allows authors to write
 >         interactive multimedia presentations. Using SMIL, an author may
 >         describe the temporal behaviour of a multimedia presentation,
 >         associate hyperlinks with media objects and describe the layout
 >         of the presentation on a screen.
 >       * Allow reusing of SMIL syntax and semantics in other XML-based
 >         languages, in particular those who need to represent timing and
 >         synchronization. For example, SMIL components are used for
 >         integrating timing into XHTML [XHTML10] and into SVG [SVG].
 >       * Extend the functionalities contained in the SMIL 2.1 [SMIL21]
 >         into new or revised SMIL 3.0 modules.
 >       * Define new SMIL 3.0 Profiles incorporating features useful
 >         within the industry.

 > Status of this document [excerpts]
 >
 > This document has been reviewed by W3C Members, by software developers,
 > and by other W3C groups and interested parties, and is endorsed by the
 > Director as a W3C Recommendation. It is a stable document and may be
 > used as reference material or cited from another document. W3C's role in
 > making the Recommendation is to draw attention to the specification and
 > to promote its widespread deployment. This enhances the functionality
 > and interoperability of the Web.
 >
 > This SMIL 3.0 edition is a new version, it extends the functionalities
 > contained in SMIL 2.1 [SMIL21], incorporating new features useful within
 > the industry.
 >
 > This SMIL3.0 W3C Recommendation supersedes the 13 December 2005 SMIL 21
 > Recommendation [SMIL21].
 >
 > The SMIL 3.0 test suite along with an implementation report are publicly
 > released and are intended solely to be used as proof of SMIL 3.0
 > implementability. It is only a snapshot of the actual implementation
 > behaviors at one moment of time, as these implementations may not be
 > immediately available to the public. The interoperability data is not
 > intended to be used for assessing or grading the performance of any
 > individual implementation.
