Today the W3C announced that it has formally published the W3C working draft version of HTML5.
According to Tim Berners-Lee:
"I am glad to see that the community of developers, including browser vendors, is working together to create the best possible path for the Web"
Clearly, Tim remains as optimistic as ever, but from the evidence of the last few weeks, it's clear this isn't exactly as happy a situation as it's made out to be. But, the work is continuing, and that's noteworthy in and of itself.
