First Public Working Drafts: W3C HTML Form HTTP Extensions, W3C HTML JSON Form Submission

The HTML Working Group has published two First Public Working Drafts today.

  • W3C HTML Form HTTP Extensions. This is an addendum to the specification of HTML5 forms extending the abilities of configuring HTTP requests through HTML markup.
  • W3C HTML JSON form submission. This specification defines a new form encoding algorithm that enables the transmission of form data as JSON. Instead of capturing form data as essentially an array of key-value pairs which is the bread and butter of existing form encodings, it relies on a simple name attribute syntax that makes it possible to capture rich data structures as JSON directly.
