W3C Last Call for HTML5 Review

May 26, 2011

Comments are welcome until August 3rd on the following document sections:

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.
