    Invisible XML is a technique for treating any parsable format as if it were XML, and thus allowing any parsable object to be injected into an XML pipeline. The parsing can also be undone, thus allowing roundtripping. This talk discusses issues with automatic serialisation, and the relationship between Invisible XML grammars and data schemas.

    This tutorial will provide you with a good understanding of the many unique characteristics of non-Latin writing systems, and illustrate the problems involved in implementing such scripts in products. It does not provide detailed coding advice, but does provide the essential background information you need to understand the fundamental issues related to Unicode deployment, across a wide range of scripts. The tutorial goes beyond encoding issues to discuss characteristics related to input of ideographs, combining characters, context-dependent shape variation, text direction, vowel signs, ligatures, punctuation, wrapping and editing, font issues, sorting and indexing, keyboards, and more. The concepts are introduced through the use of examples from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, Thai, Hindi/Tamil, Russian and Greek.

    State of W3C web performance group

    by Philippe Le Hégaret and Todd Reifsteck


    Santa Clara, CA, USA

    Relevant technology areas: Web Design and Applications and Browsers and Other Agents.


    The W3C Web Performance Working Group have been working in the last few years to add several new performance related APIs and to evolve the existing ones.

    The session will cover the work of the working group as well as other performance related efforts that are being worked by other groups, so that you can be up to date with the latest developments and with what’s coming next.

    It will also discuss how easy it is to get involved, provide feedback and influence the direction that these standards will take, in order to help shape the future of Web performance and the Web in general.

    Les nouvelles tendances de sécurité poussent depuis quelques années à l’adoption du tout HTTPS pour sécuriser l’intégrité et la confidentialité des échanges entre serveurs et navigateurs. Orthogonalement, on a des nouvelles spécifications complémentaires développées au W3C et à l’IETF qui permettent de faciliter la migration d’un serveur et son contenu vers HTTPS (HSTS, Upgrade-Insecure-Requests). Enfin, un dernier niveau permet d’indiquer aux navigateurs des politiques de sécurité pour l’utilisation du contenu (CSP), afin de minimiser, voire éliminer les attaques XSS et clickjacking parmi d’autres et en même temps d’ouvrir de manière contrôlée le partage des données issues de différentes domaines (CORS). Je propose de donner une introduction à ces différentes technologies, leurs possibilités et des outils permettant d’évaluer le niveau de sécurité d’un serveur en se basant sur un retour d’expérience de la migration vers HTTPS des serveurs Web du W3C.
