New and revised W3C drafts published
The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) has released two new working drafts and revised a third. The first new working draft, Ambient Light Events, is quite concise and proposes ways in which web applications can respond to information received from a device sensor about changes in ambient light. For example, the proposed ondevicelight event handler could be used to increase the contrast of a web page when the device is exposed to direct sunlight.
The second new working draft describes a "Model-Based User Interfaces" (MBUI) specification, which is intended to simplify the design and development of interactive systems, and describes the logical activities within such a system. UML modelling and an XML schema will be used as the basis for interchanging Task Models between different user interface development tools.
