W3C seeks your help

A chance to push HTML where you want it

Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

If you have ever thought anything about HTML – good, bad or indifferent – and if you work as a web designer, applications developer, or a browser vendor, then here is your chance to make the next iteration more like the scripting language you'd like to use.

The chance arises because W3C is re-chartering the XHTML 2 Working Group and is seeking the active participation of individuals working in the HTML field and those already using it, as well as any nominees that come from the usual interested parties. The charter has been specifically re-organised to accommodate participation from individuals working in the field, as well as vendor members.

XHTML 2.0 has already moved the technology along from the original HTML by reusing applicable XML standards, including XForms, XML Base, and XML Events. W3C aims to have the re-chartered Working Group continue such development, as well as move towards a re-branding of the technology to emphasise its differences.

So, go here if you want to get involved in the next development of web presentation technology. You could be part of XHTML 3 (if it scanned, it could be poetry – Ed).
