What's Next

In this chapter we've talked about systems for describing documents, including syntax for providing details for originator use such as creation and editing dates. The meta element can be used with the name attribute to provide any number of descriptive properties, and the http-equiv attribute is used to suggest http response headers.

Next, in Chapter 16, "Combining Custom Modules with XHTML," we'll take a look at several exciting "coming attractions" for XHTML. We've already touched briefly on the capabilities and profiling work to be done by CC/PP, and we'll take a closer look at the developments occurring in that field. Work is also underway in combining television and the Web, both from a "broadcast over the Internet" perspective as well as an "embedded Web documents in a TV broadcast" viewpoint. Finally, the ubiquitous form is in for an overhaul with extended capabilities being reviewed by the W3C XForms Working Group. We expect to see efforts to provide state management between form pages, databinding, and stronger form-field validation tools.
