Mobile Web Best Practices checker

As announced in the WWW2006 conference and as part of the Press Release accompanying the publication of the Mobile Web Best Practices as a Candidate Recommendation, work has started on the development of an open-source Best Practices checker.

It is still at alpha release stage and hasn’t been properly reviewed by the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group; meanwhile, developing it has been a lot of fun!

New responsibilities

Filed under:

As of this month, my time allocation is moving from half-QA/half-Systems Team to half-Mobile Web Initiative (also known as MWI)/half-Systems Team.

While I have a certain sadness to leave the work on QA after having been involved in it for the past three years, it’s good to leave it with a set of very satisfying results: the Specification Guidelines were published as a W3C Recommendation a few weeks ago, the Working Group – while its charter is not going to be renewed – is on track to continue its most important work items through the Interest Group, after a truly excellent face-to-face meeting in Dublin; among them, work has started on formalizing the group experience on test case metadata which should hopefully be published as a note in the upcoming weeks.

Named versus Numeric Entities

Filed under:

I was kindly notified that my RSS feed was ill-formed for the past few days, because of an — entity in one of my previous posts. While I have fixed manually the issue, I was asked in return why this entity made my feed invalid. I’m taking this question as an opportunity to start a new category on tutorials about markup languages; it may end up being only one article only, but I’m interested in getting more questions for this category if people find it useful (let me know through comments or mail).
