Ivan Herman of the W3C reports, “The W3C RDFa Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of HTML+RDFa 1.1.”

Ivan Herman of the W3C reports, “The W3C RDFa Working Group  has published a Last Call Working Draft of HTML+RDFa 1.1. This specification defines rules and guidelines for adapting the RDFa Core 1.1 and RDFa Lite 1.1 specifications for use in HTML5 and XHTML5. The rules defined in this specification not only apply to HTML5 documents in non-XML and XML mode, but also to HTML4 and XHTML documents interpreted through the HTML5 parsing rules. Comments are welcome through 28 February.”

The current draft states, “This specification had been jointly developed by the RDFa Working Group and the HTML Working Group. The document was previously published via the HTML Working Group, but has since been transitioned to the newly rechartered RDFa Working Group. Changes in this version of the specification include: (1) The addition of the Property Copying feature, a Microdata @itemref-like mechanism. (2) The addition of special processing rules for head and body. (3) Update of the Acknowledgements section. (4) Minor fixes to the specification wording in order to make processing instructions more precise.”
