W3C outlines plan to finalize HTML5

By Rich Hein, CIO |  Mobile & Wireless, HTML5, W3C

With 10 open issues, approximately 300 outstanding bugs and 11 formal objections it looks like the W3C has a tough hill to climb. That said, year to date the W3C says it has tackled more than 600 bugs and 28 issues. It also faced some challenging staffing issues in 2012 when Ian Hickson stepped down from his role as HTML5 Specification Editor to concentrate on other technologies at the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG).

Since Hickson's departure, the W3C has brought aboard 4 new editors to the HTML 5 editorial team in an effort to keep things moving forward. It has also received funding from tech giants, Microsoft, Google and Adobe. If you'd like to know more about the W3C's HTML5 Plan 2014, you can read the entire W3C plan here.
