Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

This message is to inform you that the Compound Document Formats (CDF)
Working Group [0] is now closed.  The Working Group has reached the
end of its charter and no further progress is expected on the
deliverables. Many thanks to Chairs and Participants of the Group.

The CDF Working Group began work in 2004 to define a clear unified
model for documents that include multiple formats, such as X/HTML,
SVG, SMIL, and XForms.  Although the specifications developed by the
CDF Working Group did not reach Recommendation status, they do serve
as valuable reference material, and many of the tests produced as a
result of Candidate Recommendation experience are reusable by other
groups.  The CDF Working Group also coordinated with other groups,
such as the CSS and SVG Working Groups, to successfully include
changes in those specifications which have led to better integration
of technologies and improved interoperability. The topic of compound
documents by reference and by inclusion is continued in other groups,

  * HTML 5, which includes a description of some behavior for
including SVG and MathML fragments inline in X/HTML
  * the Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group's SVG Integration
describes some of the same concepts for integrating SVG into other
technologies. This document has not been published but a group-
internal draft is available [1].

The following specifications from the CDF Working Group have been
published as Group Notes:

Compound Document by Reference Framework 1.0

WICD Core 1.0

WICD Full 1.0

WICD Mobile 1.0

Other groups in the Rich Web Clients Activity continue: Web
Applications (WebApps) and Web Performance. Related groups coming up
include Web Notification [2] and Touch Interface [3]. If you have any
further questions, please contact Doug Schepers <[hidden email]>.

This announcement follows section 6.2.8 of the Process Document [4].

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Philippe Le H├ęgaret, Interaction Domain Lead, and
Doug Schepers, Rich Web Clients Activity Lead;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications
