The WHATWG are working on the draft for Web Applications 1.0, which is about “extensions to HTML to make it more suitable for application development” and it “…represents a new version of HTML4 and XHTML1, along with a new version of the associated DOM2 HTML API“.
First, what is WHATWG?
It is a loose unofficial collaboration of Web browser manufacturers and interested parties who wish to develop new technologies designed to allow authors to write and deploy Applications over the World Wide Web.
Second, it will be interesting to see if the W3C will acknowlede it.
So, is this a good initiative? Or should we just stay with the current W3C recommendations about XHTML 1 and XHTML 2?
I don’t know.
What do you think?
PS. A nod to Anne for pointing me to this in the first place. DS.
