Updated Working Draft for DIAL — 27 July 2007

The second public Working Draft for the Device Independent Authoring Language (DIAL) was published on 27 July 2007. DIAL v1 is a profile of XHTML, XForms and DISelect. Authoring Web page content in DIAL frees developers from the need to deal with the myriad variations across devices. That task is devolved to content adaptation software that transforms the content and associated resources to suit particular delivery contexts. In addition, DIAL enables higher level authoring tools through the ability to capture the author's intent more effectively than is possible when authoring directly in HTML.
