December 2013 Standards Update
Standards Working Group Update
The DIAGRAM Standards Working Group met on December 18, 2013. The meeting was packed with updates on EPUB 3.01, EpubCheck, EDUPUB, Schema.org, and more. We also had a round-up of what the state of play is with regard to MathML support in the major browsers. To read more, see the notes from the December 18 Standards WG meeting on the wiki page for this group. Please contact co-chairs George Kerscher and Mark Hakkinen if you have ideas to add to the next meeting agenda.
