At the end of next month (February 2013), W3C will once again have a booth at Mobile World Congress to share with the congress participants news from all the mobile-relevant work happening in W3C, and our views on the importance of the Web as platform that connects devices together.

To illustrate this, we are working on a demonstration that illustrates the ability of the Web on various connected devices: laptop, tablet, phone and TV.

My book on mobile Web design and development

Book cover

I’ve spent a fair amount of my spare time over the past few months writing a book (in French) on mobile Web design and development, with my colleague François Daoust.

The book is now finally available, under the title Relever le défi du Web mobile (taking up the mobile Web challenge) — it can be ordered for instance from

We’ve also built a Web site to accompany the book,, which allows our readers to follow the various links given in the book, copy the code samples, and get corrections and updates as we produce them.

Synergies between mobile Web and accessibility

Filed under:

I will be talking next week at the first AEGIS conference in Seville, on the relationships between the mobile Web and accessibility.

I was asked to contribute a paper to include in the proceedings of the conference, and while the proceedings haven’t been published yet, I’ve just published an HTML version of that paper.

The paper starts with reminding of the similarities between mobile Web access and accessibility in terms of requirements, and compares the W3C best practices and guidelines in these domains, building up from the work the Web Accessibility Initiative and the Mobile Web Initiative did over the past years.
