Touch Events is a W3C Recommendation

The Web Events Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation of Touch Events. The Touch Events specification defines a set of low-level events that represent one or more points of contact with a touch-sensitive surface, and changes of those points with respect to the surface and any DOM elements displayed upon it (e.g. for touch screens) or associated with it (e.g. for drawing tablets without displays). It also addresses pen-tablet devices, such as drawing tablets, with consideration toward stylus capabilities. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.
