HTML5 Last Call in May 2011

HTML5 LogoThe W3C extended the charter of the HTML Working Group and reaffirmed it’s commitment to attain Last Call for HTML5 in May 2011. W3C plans to reach Recommendation by 2014. The work of W3C and other standards groups is critical in developing and maintaining an interoperable web where a multitude of devices and technologies are able to operate and users are not left stranded by proprietary media formats or balkanized accessibility technologies.

“Even as innovation continues, advancing HTML5 to Recommendation provides the entire Web ecosystem with a stable, tested, interoperable standard,” said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO. “The decision to schedule the HTML5 Last Call for May 2011 was an important step in setting industry expectations. Today we take the next step, announcing 2014 as the target for Recommendation.”
