> Dear Media and Entertainment IG ( former Web and TV IG),
> The W3C Timed Text Working Group has recently published a new working
> draft of the Timed Text Markup Language 2 (TTML2).

> TTML2, provides a standardized representation of a particular subset of
> textual information with which stylistic, layout, and timing semantics
> are associated by an author or an authoring system for the purpose of
> interchange and processing.
> In addition to being used for interchange among legacy distribution
> content formats, TTML Content may be used directly as a distribution
> format, providing, for example, a standard content format to reference
> from a <track> element in an HTML5 document, or a <text> or <textstream>
> media element in a [SMIL 3.0] document.
> The TTML2 specification updates the TTML1 specification by adding
> vocabulary and semantics to address more of its core requirements,
> including the addition of support for:
>      raster images (both foreground and background)
>      author supplied fonts
>      audio descriptions and text to speech
>      ruby text annotations
>      improved vertical line layout
>      text emphasis, kerning, letter spacing, shadows, and variants
>      inline block layout
>      stereoscopic presentation (for 3-D viewing)
>      high definition resolution (HDR) presentation
>      continuous animation
>      hyperlinks
>      conditional element semantics
>      improved metadata extensibility
>      formalized intermediate document syntax
>      various other improvements and bug fixes
> The TTWG invites you to review this draft, and requests comments to be
> received by 30 Sept 2017. These comments will be used to fulfill the
> W3C Process [3] requirement for Wide Review of drafts, and  Horizontal
> Review [4]  prior to publication as Candidate Recommendation.
