Submission + - W3C publish WHATWG Web Forms 2 draft spec

cyclomedia writes: In a glorious moment of web standards cooperation, not to mention months of revisions and mailing list debate the WHATWG Web Forms 2 draft has been accepted by, and published at the W3C. This comes over a year since the WHATWG asked for "final" comments on the spec so it's taken some time to iron out the creases.

The past month has also seen the start of an official Gecko drive to impliment the spec, possibly in time for the 1.10 release. Though bits and pieces have already been filtering into the source such as the much debated "ping" attribute. Opera already has a head start on the Mozilla camp touting Web Forms 2 support in it's 9.0 release.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
