Seven HTML related working drafts published

On March 4, the W3C published no less than seven new or updated working draft documents related to HTML:

  • HTML5: the core HTML 5 specification.
  • HTML: The Markup Language: Basically “HTML 5 for web developers”. The document describes HTML syntax, elements, and attributes without the implementation details that make the HTML 5 specification hard to read for many web professionals.
  • HTML5 differences from HTML4: How and why HTML 5 is different from HTML 4, in particular regarding new, changed, and absent elements and attributes.
  • HTML+RDFa: Rules and guidelines for using RDF in HTML 5.
  • HTML Microdata: A mechanism for embedding machine-readable data in HTML documents.
  • HTML Canvas 2D Context: A much more detailed description of the canvas element than what is in the HTML 5 specification.
  • Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML: Suggestions for making it easier to create documents and applications that support both right-to-left and left-to-right interfaces.

If you haven’t read any of the working drafts related to HTML 5 before, I suggest starting with HTML: The Markup Language.
