HTML+RDFa 1.1 (working on new heartbeat WD)

Hi folks,

The RDFa Working Group published RDFa Core 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1 in

I finally found some time this weekend to bring the HTML+RDFa spec in
line with the newest releases of RDFa 1.1. The latest time-stamped
editors draft can be found here:

The diff-marked version is here:

The following updates have been made since the last HTML+RDFa heartbeat:

* Migration to ReSpec - a new W3C spec-markup tool that is written
  in pure Javascript, HTML5 and runs in the browser.
* Inheritance of basic processing rules from RDFa 1.1 [RDFA-CORE],
  instead of XHTML+RDFa 1.0 [RDFA-SYNTAX].
* Inclusion of the HTML Default Vocabulary Terms, which mirror the
  XHTML Default Vocabulary Terms, for the purpose of HTML/XHTML
* Inclusion of a HTML 4.01 + RDFa 1.1 DTD for validation purposes.
* Added normative definition of @version attribute.
* Addressed 10 out of 24 bugs in Bugzilla queue.

The hope is that I'll be able to respond to all of the HTML+RDFa bugs by
the end of the week (time permitting).

A heartbeat draft can be prepared on very short notice, and it seems
like one should be due soon. I'll prepare a heartbeat as soon as the bug
queue is at zero, or when the HTML WG chairs' prompt me to prepare
one... whichever comes first. :)

As always, questions, concerns or comments are very welcome - please
send them to the HTML WG mailing list.
