First WD of InkML published

Dear www-multimodal,

The W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group is pleased to announce
the publication of the first Working Draft of the Ink Markup Language
(InkML), at

Public feedback is very much welcome on this list, in particular
regarding the open issues outlines in the specification.


This document describes the syntax and semantics for the Ink Markup
Language for use in the W3C Multimodal Interaction Framework as
proposed by the W3C Multimodal Interaction Activity. The Ink Markup
Language serves as the data format for representing ink entered with
an electronic pen or stylus. The markup allows for the input and
processing of handwriting, gestures, sketches, music and other
notational languages in Web-based applications. It provides a common
format for the exchange of ink data between components such as
handwriting and gesture recognizers, signature verifiers, and other
ink-aware modules.
