W3C Releases Draft of Multimedia Integration Language.
As innocuous as it sounds, the specification has been described as one of the most contentious ever considered by the W3C. SMIL's critics say it overlaps and even conflicts with existing standards, including HTML 4.0, Dynamic HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and in particular, the Document Object Model (DOM). This time last year, Microsoft Corp, which had been a founding member of the group that developed the specification, withdrew its support for SMIL because of potential conflicts with DOM.
