W3C Last Call for HTML5 Review
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) sends out last call for public review of HTML5 specifications.
"By issuing a Last Call announcement, the HTML Working Group encourages people to comment on the extent to which they believe that technical requirements have been met and significant dependencies with groups inside and outside W3C have been satisfied," the announcement says.
Comments are welcome until August 3rd on the following document sections:
- HTML + RDFa 1.1
- HTML Microdata
- HTML Canvas 2D Context
- Polyglot markup: HTML-compatible XHTML Documents
- HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternative
Yesterday, the HTML Working Group published three other drafts: HTML: The Markup Language Reference, HTML5 diffs from HTML4, and HTML to Platform Accessibility APIs Implementation Guide, and the organization asks for more contributions to the growing HTML test suite.
