The WG Note, Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages has been republished with a note at the beginning which explains the following:
- the document is now owned solely by W3C, rather than a joint production between W3C and the Unicode Consortium
- the current version of the document is out-of-date, and should be used with care
- a new version is in preparation.
Minor editorial changes have been made to Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages to fix one typo (“accent” to “acute” in Table 3.1) and update references to the Unicode Standard in the Introduction and References section.
Substantive updates are currently on hold, pending final decisions relating to new developments to be introduced with HTML5.
This document is simultaneously published by the Unicode Consortium as Unicode Technical Report #20.
The Internationalization Core Working Group has published an updated version of the Working Group Note Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages.
This document contains guidelines on the use of the Unicode Standard in conjunction with markup languages such as XML. Major changes since the previous version encompass the alignment with Unicode 5.0 and the discussion of white space handling.
The guidelines are published jointly by the Unicode Technical Committee and the W3C Internationalization Core Working Group.
