XHTML Modularization 1.1 updated

The XHTML 2 Working Group at the W3C has published an update to XHTML Modularization. This update is exciting for two reasons: First, because it means the XHTML 2 Working Group is finally almost done with its wrap up work and can shut down. Second, because the document is the first W3C Recommendation to be published in XHTML+RDFa - a dialect of XHTML that embeds semantic markup. There will be lots of W3C recommendations coming out in this format going forward, but... for today, I get to say "First!"

Next up: XHTML Basic 1.1, XHTML Print, and XHTML 1.1 are all being updated to address some minor issues and to add XML Schema implementations.

After that, the working group will publish notes about XHTML 2 and XHTML Modularization using RelaxNG. Then we can finally, finally, finally close the doors.
