Press Release: The World Wide Web Consortium Issues SMIL 1.0 as a W3C Recommendation

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has issued its first recommendation for Synchronized Multi-media Integration Language. The specification intends to help "bring television-like content to the web, avoiding the limitations for traditional television and lowering the bandwidth requirements for transmitting this type of content over the Internet. With SMIL [pronounced smile], producing audio-visual content is easy; it does not require learning a programming language and can be done using a simple text editor." Easy authorship, accessibility, and improvement of bandwidth efficiency are among a few of the promises that SMIL may bring closer to reality. The site contains a press release and more information about SMIL.
