For review: 7 new and 3 updated articles about character encoding

Comments are being sought on the following new articles prior to final publication:

  1. Handling character encodings in HTML and CSS
  2. Essential definitions related to character encodings
  3. Choosing & applying a character encoding
  4. Character encoding declarations in HTML
  5. The byte-order mark (BOM) in HTML
  6. Normalization in HTML and CSS
  7. Characters or markup?

These articles have been derived from the former tutorial, which has already undergone a review. Since then, HTML5 has been brought to the fore in the articles and various small changes have been added, including some short summary information.

The three updated articles are the result of merging the tutorial material with existing articles. They are:

The character encoding section of the techniques page relating to HTML and CSS authoring has also been overhauled, to include the new material.

Please send any comments to www-international@w3.org (subscribe). We hope to publish a final version in one to two weeks.

For review: Using <b> and <i> tags

Comments are being sought on the article Using <b> and <i> tags prior to final release. Please send any comments to www-international@w3.org (subscribe). We hope to publish a final version in one week.

This is an update, in a temporary location, of the tutorial Character sets & encodings in XHTML, HTML and CSS. (Please be careful about bookmarking the location, since it is only temporary.)

A lot of new material was added, eg. related to the UTF-8 BOM, normalization, etc., and the material was rearranged significantly. The rearrangement was to downplay slightly the XHTML 1.0 issues, given that that is now only relevant to IE6, but also to help readers more quickly find information they need for the format they are dealing with.

The explicit distinction between XHTML 1.0 and XHTML 1.1 with regard to MIME types was removed, since the XHTML2 WG is hopefully very close to issuing a PER that enables XHTML 1.1 to be served as text/html.

The update adds information about HTML5.

Where a section corresponds to an article that has been updated, those updates were also migrated to this document.
