Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. In the widget spec, we want to define and "auto update" mechanism for updating widget packages over the air....
11:01:13 [marcos]
the proposal looks like this <widget version="1.0 beta" id="htt://"> <update uri=""> </widget> Where, at runtime, %version% is replaced by the UA for the value of the version attribute.
11:01:56 [MikeSmith]
MikeSmith has joined #html-wg
11:01:57 [marcos]
The question I have is, would it be better to to define%version% as an entity reference?
11:02:11 [marcos]
i.e., &version; ?
11:02:23 [marcos]
does it matter?
11:05:29 [Philip]
Where the entity reference is not defined in the widget XML file itself, and comes from the environment outside the parser instead?
11:06:30 [marcos]
11:06:33 [Philip]
If so, that sounds like it'd be a bit of a pain for anyone using normal XML tools to process or generate those files
11:06:40 [marcos]
yeah, true
11:06:45 [marcos]
that would suck
11:07:13 [marcos]
I'll stick with %version%
11:07:19 [Philip]
Rather than %-substitution, you could use (a subset of) URI templates instead
11:07:34 [Philip]
i.e. basically just use {version} instead
11:07:42 [marcos]
ok, that could work too
11:07:52 [marcos]
is there anything written about that?
11:07:59 [Philip]
11:08:06 [Philip]
11:08:07 [Philip]
11:08:23 [marcos]
great, I'll check those out.
11:08:50 [Philip]
That might be a silly idea, but at least the syntax seems less likely to conflict with the usual existence of % in URIs
11:09:18 [hsivonen]
marcos: entity references are trouble
11:12:21 [MikeSmith]
fwiw, I agree with hsivonen .. named entity references are one of the ugliest legacies inherited from SGML.. wish we could kill them off entirely
11:13:00 [marcos]
hsivonen, yeah. I see that now...
11:13:19 [marcos]
MikeSmith, understood.
11:14:01 [Philip]
(but sandboxing saved the day)
11:14:19 [Philip]
(Uh, I think they might have meant to write file:// in that example)
11:14:25 [jmb]
Philip: have you a link to that?
11:14:41 [Philip]
11:14:59 [jmb]
11:17:01 [Philip]
(It seems they're ignoring the issue of the web security model (i.e. enforcing same-originality etc), and only trying to prevent web pages interfering with the user's own computer)

what's the observing etiquette and schedule? is it poor form to request observer status on another WG on the same days the HTML WG meets (since that would mean either skipping some HTML stuff or not actually observing most of the time)?

it's quite common to request to observe several meetings at once
14:34:39 [hsivonen]
DanC: OK. thanks.
14:38:02 [smedero]
DanC: So I requested observer status through the survey form - but should I be following up with the chairs of the respective working groups directly?
14:39:11 [DanC]
the norm is that the ball is now in the chairs' court, smedero . You should follow up only if you think a special case is worth making
14:39:38 [DanC]
most chairs just send a bulk "sure, fine, come and observe" message to all requesters, I think
14:39:51 [DanC]
I suppose some don't get around to it at all
14:39:52 [smedero]
that's what I assumed... I just wanted to make sure I didn't drop the ball on that.

in light of DSinger's only being here for the first 10 minutes or so, I'll suggest we start with a/v accessibility discussion
16:04:05 [ChrisWilson]
anything to add to the agenda?
16:04:59 [Laura]
16:04:59 [Laura]
16:05:05 [Laura]
I started a page in the Wiki for Multimedia Accessibilty <Audio> <Video>
16:05:05 [Laura]
16:05:19 [DanC]
copy of use cases:
16:05:39 [Laura]
16:05:40 [Laura]
Multimedia presentations (rich media) usually involve both motion and the spoken word. This can present accessibility barriers to those who suffer either visual or audio impairments.
16:05:46 [Laura]
The visual components of a multimedia presentation can't be directly accessed by visual impaired users. Likewise, users who are deaf or hard of hearing will not be able to directly access auditory information.
16:05:54 [Laura]
Some users may simply not have the equipment, software or connection speed necessary to access multimedia files.
16:05:54 [Laura]
Multi-media = multi-modal/multi-sensory so there are many permutations where one or more "modes" may not be available, so we need to try and address each mode as a separate entity as well as the default "combined" or multi-media asset. Separation of these is key.
16:06:02 [Laura]
16:06:02 [Laura]
HTML 5 needs to supply support pieces that can be referenced from within <video> and <audio>. Ideally all the support pieces should be direct descendants (children) of the parent <video> or <audio>, but unique and separate. In a perfect world all would be supplied, but even when less than perfect a method to provide one or more support pieces should exist.
16:06:09 [Laura]
Example: and look at the source code: there are params for the video, the caption, JW FLV also supports descriptive audio, and even little extras like the watermark. HTML 5 should have a similar approach in native support of any media asset
16:06:17 [Laura]
Captions, transcripts, text descriptions, and audio descriptions are different from one another.
16:06:17 [Laura]
A clean, semantic, explicit association to transcripts, text descriptions, captions, audio descriptions and/or streams that could be toggled on or off by the end user would be very beneficial. These items will get lost if they are outside the parent element. We need a way for authors to link items together, within the element.
16:06:17 [Laura]
The embedded model ensures that the linkage is there, and if the author chooses to also provide an in-the-clear linkage to one or more of these support pieces than this is a win.
16:06:17 [Laura]
Some kind of mechanism is needed...attributes on <video> could do it. Likewise for attributes on <audio>.

HS: underlying assumption of HTML5 work is HTML5 is common ground - arbitrary XML vocab mapped to semantics AT understands introducing new layer of interaction - new middleware between AT and markup - why not make that ground HTML
16:22:58 [aroben_]
aroben_ has joined #html-wg
16:23:21 [oedipus]
GJR: HTML5 does not exist as a specification - one class of readers to disclaimers might change are AT vendors -- they are going to wait until there is sufficient market penetration
16:23:31 [DanC]
(the "just use HTML as the AT solution for specialized vocabularies" sounds familiar... that was the outcome in the HTML 2 timeframe for SGML accessiblity.)
16:23:40 [oedipus]
GJR: one reason why at vendors putting eggs in ARIA basket
16:23:47 [hsivonen]
ARIA is in flux as well
16:24:09 [oedipus]
CW: adding features to HTML5 via ARIA aren't distant future-sollutions, but will be added over time

CW: why for features added to HTML5 but not ARIA features added to current HTML implementations
16:25:21 [hsivonen]
XQuery for AT capabilities doesn't exist as a REC today, either, right?
16:25:30 [oedipus]
CW: agree that need standards and coordination here - have to have that on AT side, as well -- not sure why precludes one sollution or another
16:26:15 [oedipus]
GJR: i don't think it precludes one solution or another, but i don't think we should proscribe one solution over another
16:27:14 [oedipus]
DS: point of ARIA not to supersede native semantics of ML language; ATs will adapt to HTML5 and ARIA, but ARIA goes beyond the scope of HTML WG
16:27:38 [oedipus]
CS: browser devs will do same things doing now - mapping HTML semantics to appropriate accessibility API so ARIA can be used anywhere
16:27:59 [oedipus]
DS: not certain why conflict at all between HTML5 and ARIA?
16:28:05 [oedipus]
CS: synchronization
16:29:39 [oedipus]
DS: widgets will only be deployed on IE8x - not on IE5 or IE6 which are not going away soon -- sites will continue to use javascript libraries to backport content; rather than get IE6 out of the hands of users, we don't care what version of browser or what browser you are using, but here is our syntax; with script libraries, AT will understand things at level that HTML5 browser does
16:29:43 [oedipus]
CS: if supports ARIA
16:29:55 [oedipus]
CS: some vendors will do for older browsers
16:30:03 [hsivonen]
16:30:12 [oedipus]
DS: only if AT supports it -- values and attributes into the DOM what UA should do
16:30:23 [oedipus]
CS: also important for UA to map to OS
16:30:30 [oedipus]
DS: if UA can do that, we are ok
16:30:40 [oedipus]
GJR: point simply was that ARIA for more than HTML5
16:30:57 [oedipus]

16:31:34 [Lachy]
xquery is overkill, something like media queries would be syntactically better, but media queries itself is not suitable
16:31:35 [oedipus]
HS: in end, need to have something AT understands -- AT understands stuff in DOM or uses API that AT understands
16:31:58 [oedipus]
HS: arbitrary XML vocabularies are not accessible - mapping to ARIA or HTML5 if UA knows about ARIA or HTML5
16:32:07 [DanC]
(hmm... since the HTML 2 timeframe, I wonder what ebooks do... do they use HTML vocabulary for accessibility, I wonder?)
16:32:16 [oedipus]
GJR: the solution is going to be middle-ware --
16:32:29 [oedipus]
CW: mapping components from known to more simplistic
16:32:56 [oedipus]
DS: HTML is going to be more sparse language than GUI frameworks natively supported on desktops;

DS: ARIA goes beyond what HTML5 does or plans to do -- why map to something that is known to be less rich when have option to map to something more rich just for the sake of a vocabulary (in this case HTML5)
16:34:00 [oedipus]
HS: HTML5 and ARIA being implemented so UA understands DOM and communicates to AT; just pointing out that arbitrary XML vocabularies
16:34:30 [DanC]
(the first ebook standard I find uses XHTML + namespaces. <html xmlns="" xmlns:ops=""> )
16:34:49 [oedipus]
GJR: available now is ARIA; what is being developed are expert handlers that build upon the ARIA model to provide meaningful read/write access to XML dialects in specialized knowledge domain
16:36:04 [oedipus]
DS: CWilson right -- drifting away; don't need to introduce arbitrary XML into conversation; use of script, plus CSS plus markup to make
16:36:08 [oedipus]
16:36:19 [oedipus]
GJR: ARIA not for HTML5 per se, broader
16:36:32 [oedipus]
DS: violent agreement

CW: next steps on action 72 - action on CW about headers and header functionality; still need to shift through all info; either declare consensus or post a poll; collect issues into 1 email to send to list -- hope to get to it very soon

TPAC agenda:
16:47:26 [oedipus]
CW: MikeS sent out email on TPAC agenda - only 1 response received so far
16:47:50 [mjs]
mjs has joined #html-wg
16:48:07 [oedipus]
CW: my take on TPAC similar to MikeSmith's -- first steps are looking through spec and ascertaining where spec is stable enough to generate test cases and creating test suite
16:48:20 [oedipus]
CW: figuring out where we are in terms of stability more interesting in short term
16:48:43 [oedipus]
CW: any suggestions for additions to TPAC meetings, plese send to list
16:49:06 [oedipus]
LH: too much time on tutorial slotted (3 hours)
16:49:41 [oedipus]
CW: going to end up spending a lot more of our time figuring out what portions of tech are ready for test cases; easier for us to expand into test case writing area than contract schedule - take what time is needed
16:49:50 [oedipus]
LH: ok
16:49:54 [hsivonen]
16:49:54 [ChrisWilson]
zakim, close item 2
16:49:55 [Zakim]
I see a speaker queue remaining and respectfully decline to close this agendum, ChrisWilson
16:50:00 [ChrisWilson]
ack hsivonen
16:50:18 [oedipus]
HS: face2face time better for discussion than writing tests
16:50:21 [oedipus]
CW: absolutely
16:51:05 [oedipus]
CW: comment to MikeS was time spent at last TPAC doing tutorial on how to build test cases useful - can see us spending that time, but this time with follow up -- identifying where we can write test cases - what is solid and what is not
16:51:25 [oedipus]
CW: don't want to spend a lot of time with everyone coding - not point of TPAC meeting
16:51:35 [Lachy]
DanC, I don't have any ideas yet, but I'll think about it and mail the list
16:51:47 [oedipus]
CW: value in using test suite for getting handle on how stable spec is, which is what i really want to get out of f2f
16:51:50 [DanC]
(I wish I'd made more progress on tests to date... sometimes I wonder where all the time went.)
16:52:08 [oedipus]
