The Web is a formidable tool to host documentation; nothing new about that.

But documentation, be it on the Web or not, tend to rot when not maintained. Nothing new about that either.

While documentation maintenance is probably better addressed at the social-engineering level, there are tools that can help manage it; namely, a few weeks ago, W3C Systems Team went through the process of cleaning up our internal documentation on processes, tools, services, configurations, etc. that sits on our Team-only Web site, but is too rarely kept up to date with the latest developments.

Educational materials for Web Architecture

Filed under:

The W3C Technical Architecture Group published its first volume of the Web architecture back in December — by the way, an excellent read for those that are versed into understanding the foundations of the Web technologies.

And now, they are asking for contributions to educational materials on this very topic, in exchange of having it reviewed by the Web architecture leading experts, and being linked from the W3C Web site, much the same way the QA Team has been asking for contributions to QA Tips; so, if you have anything in your basket that fits the description, it’s probably a good deal.

CSS 3 Modules dependencies visualized

Filed under:

The CSS Working Group is developing its CSS 3 technology as a set of modules ; each module describes a specific subset of properties, syntax rules, processing model, etc.

Given the relatively high number of said modules (24 at this day), and knowing that there are interdependencies between them, it becomes quickly hard to follow what’s going on and in which order.

To help get a clearer view of the CSS landscape, I decided to fire up my XSLT gun armed with a bit of RDF…

  1. a spidering XSLT style sheet gets from the RDF list of W3C Technical Reports those that were produced by the CSS Working Group
