"For more than a decade, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been at 
work on a set of coding standards intended to enable a single piece of 
code  be it for an app or a website  to display across a broad range 
of connected devices. And the automotive industry has been paying close 
attention, hoping this new set of standards, known as HTML5, would 
increase the number of apps available for the connected vehicle, or, at 
the very least, bring down development costs.

By the look of it, the W3C, which acts as the main international 
standards organization for the World Wide Web, is getting close. In 
December 2012, it published the complete definition of HTML5 
specifications  an actual set of standards is expected before the end 
of this year. And the connected car industry is now part of the official 
process. The W3Cs Automotive and Web Platform Business Group launched 
in February 2013, and the first draft of an HTML5 automotive standard is 
expected in April."
