W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device.

Standards

Although the boundaries of the platform continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone for this platform. Future Media Standards & Guidelines - Home Page. Web Design and Applications. The W3C needs to make sure that the typographic needs of scripts and languages around the world are built in to technologies such as HTML, CSS, SVG, etc. so that Web pages and eBooks can look and behave as expected for people around the world.

Web Design and Applications

To that end we have experts in various parts of the world documenting typographic requirements and gaps between what is needed and what is currently supported in browsers and ebook readers. The flagship document is Requirements for Japanese Text Layout. The information in this document has been widely used, and the process used for creating it was extremely effective.

A Typical HTML Page

This raises the question: What is a good, representative, HTML document? For many people a good document seems to file into one of two categories: A large web page with a lot of content. When we did our initial performance testing with jQuery we used Shakespeare's As You Like It (lots of elements, but a very flat structure) - Mootools uses an old draft of the W3C CSS3 Selectors recommendation.

Figure 3.1 illustrates this difference. Figure 3.1: Linear text and hypertext The word self-contained is important.
