XML is Ten!

   Ten years ago, on 10 February 1998, W3C published "Extensible Markup
   Language (XML) 1.0" as a W3C Recommendation. W3C is marking the
   ten-year anniversary of XML by celebrating "XML10" and extending
   thanks to the dedicated communities -- including people who have
   participated in W3C's XML groups and mailing lists, the SGML
   community, and xml-dev -- whose efforts have created a successful
   family of technologies based on the solid XML 1.0 foundation. The
   success of XML is a strong indicator of how dedicated individuals,
   working within the W3C Process, can engage with a larger community
   to produce industry-changing results. "Today we celebrate the
   success of open standards in preserving Web data from proprietary
   ownership," said Jon Bosak, who led the W3C Working Group that
   produced XML 1.0. Read the press release and testimonials. Send W3C
   a greeting and learn more about XML at W3C.


Last Call: CSS Namespaces Module

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published the
   Last Call Working Draft of "CSS Namespaces Module." The CSS
   Namespaces module defines the syntax for using namespaces in CSS. It
   defines the @namespace rule for declaring the default namespace and
   binding namespaces to namespace prefixes, and it also defines a
   syntax that other specifications can adopt for using those prefixes
   in namespace-qualified names. Comments are welcome through 7 March.
   Learn more about the Style Activity.


Access Control for Cross-site Requests

   The Web Application Formats Working Group has published the Working
   Draft of "Access Control for Cross-site Requests." Web application
   technologies commonly apply same-origin restrictions to network
   requests. These restrictions prevent a Web application running from
   one origin from obtaining data retrieved from another origin, and
   also limit the amount of unsafe HTTP requests that can be
   automatically launched toward destinations that differ from the
   running application's origin. This document defines a mechanism to
   enable client-side cross-site requests. Learn more about the Rich
   Web Client Activity.


Note: Best Practices for XML Internationalization

   The Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Working Group has published a
   Group Note of "Best Practices for XML Internationalization." This
   document provides a set of guidelines for developing XML documents
   and schemas that are internationalized properly. Following the best
   practices describes here allow both the developer of XML
   applications, as well as the author of XML content to create
   material in different languages. Learn more about the
   Internationalization Activity.
