[ANN] HTML5 and XML: a symposium


HTML5 and XML: Mending Fences 
a Balisage pre-conference symposium

a one-day symposium preceding Balisage: The Markup Conference
Robin Berjon, chair

Despite a decade of efforts dedicated to making XML the markup language of the Web, today it is HTML5 that has taken on that role. While HTML5 can in part be made to work with an XML syntax, reliance on that feature is rare compared to use of HTML5's own syntax.

Over the years, the competition between these two approaches has led to animosity and frustration. But both XML and HTML5 are now clearly here to stay, and with the upcoming standardisation of HTML5 in 2014 it is now time to take stock and see how both technologies — and both communities — can coöperate constructively.

There are many environments in which these two markup languages are brought to interact. Additionally, there is much that they can learn from one another. We are looking forward to sharing experiences and ideas that bring the two together.

Topics include:

We welcome proposals to present at the Symposium. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

- Experiences (at any level of success) working with both HTML and XML
- Applying XML tools to HTML5 and vice-versa
- How Web technology built on XML can be brought to the HTML5 world
- Capturing data and metadata in HTML, or in general extending or refining HTML for specific applications
- Approaches to working with non-XML languages with an XML tool-set, including notably JSON as it is commonly used in conjunction with HTML
