Current developments at W3C, and the SW
Ivan Herman, W3C
Seoul, Korea, 24 June 2004

Slides of the presentation given at the KRTNET 2004 Conference, on the 24th of June, 2004, in Seoul, South-Korea.

If your browser is enabled for SVG, I advise you to view the slideset in SVG. You may want to check the SVG Implementations page for more details on players and on the latest versions. Otherwise, you can use the links to the HTML slides below, but you will loose, for example, some rescaling and animation effects. Besides, the slides look much nicer in SVG…

Note: if you want to use Adobe’s SVG plugin, you must use the latest, ASV6 version for these slides. The slides also work with Batik 1.5.

Finally, a PDF file is also available, containing all the slides. You can use it for printing, for example.
