W3C announced the creation of the XForms Activity. More flexible than previous HTML and XHTML form technologies, XForms separate purpose, presentation, and data. The Activity is producing advanced forms logic, improved internationalization, and rich user interface capabilities. Read the XForms Activity statement and visit the XForms home page. W3C also announced the advancement of the “Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) Version 2.0” to Candidate Recommendation. Comments are welcome through 10 April. VoiceXML uses XML to bring synthesized speech, spoken and touch-tone input, digitized audio, recording, telephony, and computer-human conversations to the Web. www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms, www.w3.org/Voice
