A look at the upcoming standards by W3C

W3C is developing several new Web technologies and modules for existing technologies, many of which have to do with the requirements of new, mobile devices. This talk will look at a few of them.

W3C has some 50 working groups. Some of them work on guidelines or "best practice," but many of them write specifications for new technology. Looking at what those groups are developing should give a good idea of what W3C and its members expect to happen on the Web in the next couple of years. This talk will describe a few of the developments, with a special focus on delivering Web content on mobile devices. Some of the expected topics are CSS level 3, Compound Documents, EMMA, XHTML2, and "binary XML."
