New Resources for HTML and CSS Authors on Character Encodings

The Internationalization Core Working Group has just published 6 new articles and updated a further 5 articles and a tutorial to help HTML and CSS authors understand how to work with character encodings on the Web. For instance, there are articles that explore how to choose an encoding, how to declare it in various flavours of HTML and XHTML, what you need to know about the byte-order mark and normalization, and when to use (or not use) character escapes.

Last Call: Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Events Specification

The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Events Specification. DOM Events is designed with two main goals. The first goal is the design of an event system which allows registration of event listeners and describes event flow through a tree structure. Additionally, the specification will provide standard modules of events for user interface control and document mutation notifications, including defined contextual information for each of these event modules. The second goal of DOM Events is to provide a common subset of the current event systems used in existing browsers. This is intended to foster interoperability of existing scripts and content. Comments are welcome through 18 October. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

W3C Invites Implementations of Geolocation API Specification

Common sources of location information include Global Positioning System (GPS) and location inferred from network signals such as IP address, RFID, WiFi and Bluetooth MAC addresses, and GSM/CDMA cell IDs, as well as user input.
