Call for Review: TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and Captions
1.0 (IMSC1) Proposed Recommendation Published

   8 March 2016

   The Timed Text Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and
   Captions 1.0 (IMSC1)." This document specifies two profiles of
   TTML1: a text-only profile and an image-only profile. These
   profiles are intended to be used across subtitle and caption
   delivery applications worldwide, thereby simplifying
   interoperability, consistent rendering and conversion to other
   subtitling and captioning formats. Comments are welcome through 08


HTML 5.1 Draft Updated

   11 March 2016

   The Web Platform Working Group has published an updated Working
   Draft of "HTML 5.1." In this version of the 5th major version of
   the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), the core language of the
   World Wide Web, new features continue to be introduced to help Web
   application authors, new elements continue to be introduced based
   on research into prevailing authoring practices, and special
   attention continues to be given to defining clear conformance
   criteria for user agents in an effort to improve interoperability.


   Please, read more about the group’s plans to establish a regular
   rhythm of publication and how the group is working toward an HTML
   5.1 Recommendation later this year.


W3C Invites Implementations of WebIDL Level 1

   8 March 2016

   The Web Platform Working Group invites implementation of the
   Candidate Recommendation of "WebIDL Level 1." This document
   defines an interface definition language, Web IDL, that can be
   used to describe interfaces that are intended to be implemented in
   web browsers. Web IDL is an IDL variant with a number of features
   that allow the behavior of common script objects in the web
   platform to be specified more readily. How interfaces described
   with Web IDL correspond to constructs within ECMAScript execution
   environments is also detailed in this document. It is expected
   that this document acts as a guide to implementors of
   already-published specifications, and that newly published
   specifications reference this document to ensure conforming
   implementations of interfaces are interoperable.
