The Third Dáil

by Theresa O’Connor on 19 December 2007

Confused about how the unitary HTML5 draft is being developed in and by both the WHATWG and the W3C's HTMLWG? At some point I intend to flesh this out, but for now, consider the situation of the Third Dáil.


  1. The answer is simple. The HTML 5 Editor Draft was developed by Ian Hickson. This document has been chosen by the HTML WG as a base for publishing a new technical specification. The first publication will happen in January probably.

    The WHATWG is one of the input sources of the HTML 5 Editor drafts. There are others like mailing lists, blog posts, bug tracking systems, etc.
