This wiki is for connecting the W3C communities (Web developers, implementers, people who make the W3C specifications). The W3C has a formal track for making standards specifications. The specs answer a lot of questions, but not all of them. The wiki is used by many communities such as the Open Web Platform and the Semantic Web. You might want to contribute to W3C work.
Pages here have no formal status but may have WikiConsensus. Questions & answers here may be misleading, or just plain wrong. Or, they may be useful. You are welcome to add, fix, develop and rearrange topics.

- You might be interested in learning HTML or have a reference about HTML elements.
- The W3C Quality Assurance was a dedicated W3C activity from 2001 to 2005. It included work on the Markup validator, but also touched upon topics such as tracking issues and URI testing among others. The W3C maintains a liaison with IETF to coordinate on technologies and specification related to the Open Web Platform.
See http://w3.org/TR for current specs. Work being done to improve specs in general:
- SpecProd - an effort to restyle spec content design.
- Spec Advancement - proposals for accelerating spec advancement.
An attempt to round up discussions about extensibility, versioning, naming, identifiers, registries, standards process.
Please help us identify barriers to participation in W3C activities, discussions, teams, etc. More importantly, contribute ideas on how to get around those barriers! Open to all! Click the title and join in!

Security and Privacy
- Security, starting around March 2006, for discussion on W3C Security-related specifications and enhancements to XML-Dsig.
- Using Web technologies implies traceability, logs, identification, therefore Privacy is becoming a growing concern from the community and need to be addressed at the technical level.
- IdentityBrowser, a wiki page for notes relating to the W3C Identity in the Browser Workshop.
- IdentityCharter, a wiki page for the draft charter which may include Crypto API and Identity API.
- SchemaComposition and topics related to XML Schema, prompted by the W3C Workshop on XML Schema 1.0 User Experiences.
- XprocVnext for candidate requirements discussion by the XML Processing Model WG.
