This is the Candidate Recommendation specification of "DOM Level 3 Validation". This version is based on the feedback during the Last Call period. The DOM Working Group expects to request that the Director advance this specification to Proposed Recommendation after the DOM Working Group documents two interoperable implementations of at least one normative binding. Basic tests of features of this specification will be produced and used in this effort. The two implementations must be produced by different organizations. The estimated end of the Candidate Recommendation period is 31 August 2003. Comments on this document are invited and are to be sent to the public mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org, before the end of the review period. An archive is available at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/.
Individuals or organizations are also invited to send a message to the public mailing list if they intend to produce an implementation of this module. The implementation report is also available.
