about: This brand new specification defines an interface for web applications to access timing information related to navigation and elements. When implemented, this will help track web pages frontend performance.
about: TAW3 with a click allows to verify, with just a click, the accessibility of the Web sites that you are visiting, by means of the TAW3 online service (www.tawdis.net) and making use of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0).
As part of an effort to promote the current work on HTML to web developers, Olivier Thereaux has been working lately on integrating the W3C Markup Validator with the HTML5 parser and checker developed over the past few years by Henri Sivonen.
about: The Resource Description Framework RDF allows the users to describe Web documents and resources from the real world—people, organisations, things—in a computer-processable way. Publishing such descriptions on the Web creates the Semantic Web. URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) are very important, forming the link between RDF and the Web. This document presents guidelines for their effective use. It discusses two strategies, called 303 URIs and hash URIs. It gives pointers to several Web sites that use these solutions, and briefly discusses why several other proposals have problems.
about: Users and software agents should be able to discover, invoke, compose, and monitor Web resources offering particular services and having particular properties, and should be able to do so with a high degree of automation if desired. Powerful tools should be enabled by service descriptions, across the Web service lifecycle. OWL-S (formerly DAML-S) is an ontology of services that makes these functionalities possible. In this submission we describe the overall structure of the ontology and its three main parts: the service profile for advertising and discovering services; the process model, which gives a detailed description of a service's operation; and the grounding, which provides details on how to interoperate with a service, via messages.
about: The type of widgets that are addressed by this document are usually small client-side applications for displaying and updating remote data, packaged in a way to allow a single download and installation on a client machine. The widget may execute outside of the typical web browser interface. Examples include clocks, stock tickers, news casters, games and weather forecasters. Some existing industry solutions go by the names "widgets", "gadgets" or "modules".
about: This document defines an alternative means of serializing the results of the SPARQL ASK and SELECT query forms using JSON, a lightweight representation format which emphasizes concision and legibility. (one day my son, that will work...)
