Table Key

The tables above use the following abbreviations and conventions:

  • No Formal Pub = the document has not yet been formally published by the W3C as a Technical Report.

Preliminary specs in Progress

In a few cases, we have specifications in progress but they are not listed in one of the above tables because the draft is very preliminary. See WebApps' three CVS directories (WAF, WebAPI and HTML) for more information.
