Subject: [read20-l] report from W3c publishing summit

At Publishers Weekly, Jason Boog has a wrap up of the evidently very 
future forward W3C summit -

"During a presentation at the summit, McCloy-Kelley shared a long list 
of print formats that publishers currently can’t adapt as digital 
books—mostly due to the technical limitations of eBook formats. These 
included pop-up books, flap books, touch and feel books, and books with 
more than 3,000 images. “We hope that our working with the W3C moves to 
the place where we have more control for these formats,” she said, 
looking forward to a day when a shared digital standard could include 
digital publishing with virtual reality elements, augmented reality 
add-ons, or other innovations yet to appear."
