Hi all,
Rob Lanphier from Helix mentions 8 minutes into this webcast that their 
interested in Timed-text but that it takes a long time.


Does version 1.0 of Timed-text have to take a long time? Can it just 
have the features of RealText, added transparent background for the
first version. In a language structure resembling XHTML+SMIL, in an 
effort to keep the all the multimedia languages as similar as possible.
Who knows in 5 to 10 years all these profiles may be united into one
Multimedia profile for computer screens, phone-mobile screens, digital TV.

An elaborate example of XHTML+SMIL text, that would make a good 
Timed-text version 2.0 demo :)


IE 6 only, about 1MB and a little over 1 minute long, preloaded to be in
