    Semantic Web in Libraries (ISWB16)

    The publication of EPUB3 has been a major step forward digital publishing. Relying on Web Technologies like HTML, CSS, SVG, and others, EPUB3 offers a solid basis to publish not only digital books, but all sorts of digital publications in a portable, adaptable and accessible manner. However, it is possible to bring the publishing and the Web world even closer together, making the current format- and workflow-level separation between offline/portable and online (Web) document publishing eventually disappear. These should be merely two dynamic manifestations of the same publication: content authored with online use as the primary mode can easily be saved by the user for offline reading in portable document form. Content authored primarily for use as a portable document can be put online, without any need for refactoring the content. Essential features flow seamlessly between online and offline modes; examples include cross-references, user annotations, access to online databases, as well as licensing and rights management.
    W3C and IDPF have recently started to work towards this vision, exploring the technical challenges to make it a reality; this talk will give an overview on where we are.

    Sure, everyone uses WebFonts now. But are you using the full capabilities of modern OpenType fonts, with your CSS? Did you know how to get tabular or lining numerals, how to avoid fake smallcaps? Are you up to speed on chromatic fonts? What about controlling font loading through a JavaScript API, to optimize performance on desktop and mobile? And what is coming in the future? Are you ready to *level up* on webfonts?

    ABC News

    Saturday August 5 2016 marks an important anniversary, the 25th birthday of the World Wide Web. In France, there was Minitel. For lawyers, Lexis-Nexis. That all changed when Tim Berners-Lee drew up a flow chart and brought it to his boss who scribbled, vague, but exciting. The idea was for all those different systems to talk to each other. And he had a name for it. "It was a very ambitious name at the time, for this tiny little experiment from a lab in Switzerland to call itself the World Wide Web," said Marc Weber, curatorial director of Internet History. Watch the video for Jonathan Bloom's full report.

Which used to be in (well you get the idea). Why has color management taken so long to get going on the Web? Isn't it kind of esoteric and specialized - what does it do for you, in practical terms? What, in fact, is color anyway - isn't it kind of subjective?

    Seoul, Korea

    In 2014 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the birth of the Web. Its evolution over that time has been remarkable in many respects. It has changed our lives in so many ways, which prompts an important question as to how it will evolve over the next 25 years. What are the additional roles it can play and the opportunities and threats for them? What are the directions for necessary technical advances? Will it be able to withstand the pressures and challenges that we see ahead in areas such as privacy, security, trust and governance? What should we be doing to ensure that the Web remains a force for the good of humanity? This panel brings together leaders in the field who will share with us their vision of what the next 25 years might hold in store for the system that is now an essential part of all our lives.

In addition to new markup to support bidirectional text (eg. in scripts such as Arabic, Hebrew and Thaana), the Internationalization Working Group at the W3C has been proposing changes to the current HTML5 ruby markup model. Ruby are annotations used in Japanese and Chinese to help readers recognize and understand ideographic characters. It is commonly used in educational material, manga, and can help with accessibility. The Working Group has also proposed the addition of a flag to indicate when text in a page should not be translated.
