 [ ] I'm currently working on an implementation
[*] I plan to do an implementation in the following timeframe:

The Opera project of INRIA Rhone-Alpes has proposed the following project
to a computer-science student: adapt an existing authoring and
presentation environment, namely Madeus, to playback SMIL documents.
The project will begin at the end of march 1998. We should have first
results in june.
Let me remember that Madeus is an authoring environment for interactive
multimedia document based on the constraint technology.
More information about Madeus  could be found at : http://opera
