Hi,

There is interesting article on slashdot
http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/06/07/107259 
here is other link referenced from that article
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=4816

here is the stuff?
"MozillaZine is reporting that the Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software
have formed a working group to develop specifications for Web
applications. The new Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group
is working on specs for Web Forms 2.0, Web Apps 1.0 and Web Controls
1.0, among others. This is being done outside of the W3C, with the hope
of getting a viable alternative to Longhorn's XAML available soon.
Another reason for working outside the W3C could be the rift between
Mozilla/Opera and other W3C members over what technologies Web
applications solutions such be based on: Mozilla/Opera favour a
backwards-compatible HTML-based standard, others are looking towards to
XForms and SVG. It will be interesting to see if any other browser
developers jump on board WHATWG.

The questions is how this related to SVG development, what do you think?

Regards
Tonny Kohar
