           Summary: Support for datatypes used by HTML <time> element
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2
        AssignedTo: David_E3@VERIFONE.com

The new <time> element in HTML5 [1] supports a range of different
date/time/duration formats. Most of these match the value space of existing XML
Schema datatypes (if not their lexical space), but there are two in particular
that don't (at least these were the two that jumped out at me):

* timezone ('Z' or [+-]hh:mm)
* week (YYYY-Www)

It would ease extraction of data from HTML <time> elements if XML and RDF were
able to support these datatypes. Could they be added (perhaps as xs:timezone
and xs:gYearWeek)?

(note this is not yet reflected in W3C version of the spec, but I think it's
likely it will be)
