HTML5 specification published

W3C has published the full definitions of the HTML5 and Canvas 2D specifications and is now moving on to interoperability and performance testing. The W3C settling on a specification for HTML5 should mean that web browser developers can now provide support for a common set of functions rather than implementing parts of the specification. The W3C said that it expects to see “broad HTML5 interoperability” by 2014. In a recent Kendo UI survey of more than 4000 developers, 63 percent indicate that they are “actively developing with HTML5.”

W3C also announced the first draft of HTML 5.1 and Canvas 2D, Level 2 as an early view of the next round of standardization.

    W3C Declares DRM In-Scope For HTML

    “The W3C has ruled DRM in-scope for their HTML standard. A lot of big businesses have supported advancing the Encrypted Media Extension, including Google, Microsoft, and Netfix.”

    “There are other applications that can serve the purpose of viewing DRM video content, and I appeal to people to not taint the web standards with DRM but to please use other applications when necessary.”
