Conformance Checker Schema Layer Updated

Monday, April 9th, 2007

The conformance checker technology preview has been stuck in a time warp for a while, because I have been writing about it instead of working on it.

I am happy to report that the schema layer has now undergone a major update. (The Java parts have the same bugs as before. I have not forgotten about those. They just are not what this update is about.)

Plans for HTML6

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

The WHATTF have today decided to reveal our plans for HTML6. The objective is to rewrite HTML5 based off the new ISO standard OOXML specification as the serialization. The architectural model will adhere to the principle of separation of semantics from presentation using RDF for semantics and XSL-FO for presentation. An XML Schema will be provided for semantic validation.

Advantages:

We firmly believe that new HTML version should maintain backwards compatibility and specification writers must not reinvent the wheel. We've come to the conclusion that the OOXML specification adheres to these goals, making life easier for everyone: users, developers, implementors and spec writers

More details will follow soon.
