Unicode Consortium formed by several major firms has adopted ISO 's BMP contents as standards for Unicode and are aggressively pursuing practical application of the standard. At the same time, the "two-shore" between Taiwan and China interactive relationship is changing and exchanges between the two countries are increasing. ISO can be a mutual standard for Chinese codes. Chinese Information specialist from the two countries can jointly discuss the present ISO standards to find out ways of allowing ISO to be more suitable for Chinese Information processing in the two countries, as well as to strengthen the cooperation of information technology between the two countries to improve the information processing techniques further.
Intended Areas of Application This standard is applicable to the processing of Chinese language information. Encoding Considerations 1 Restricted to character sets included in the four tables of standard characters announced by the MOE. Each plane is divided into 94 rows and each row has 94 columns. Altogether, a total number of 8, glyphs can be accommodated in each plane. Character planes 1 to 11 are for standard Chinese characters while character planes 12 to 16 are user-defined areas, allowing users to define glyphs that are yet to be collected in the standard areas.
Character plane one is mainly for frequently used characters. Character plane two is for less frequently used characters. Character plane three is for rarely used characters and frequently used Chinese character variants. Character plane five is for rarely used characters and character plane six and seven are mainly for Chinese character variants. Ideographs defined in character planes one and two were announced national standards on August 4, Principles of structuring character codes 1 Characters and fonts were selected based on the "Table of Standard Chinese Characters" published by the MOE.
Description : There are mainly two hassles associated with the use of Chinese characters. One is that there are a large number of characters and the other is that the number of Chinese character variants is increasing. Currently, the total number of Chinese characters is large but in fact, those frequently used by people are around 5, characters only.
New words continue to increase, thus making the processing of Chinese language information a hassle. The Table of Standard Character Sets published by the MOE is the work of many years in terms of collection, assessment, analysis and selection. It is an unbiased and objective source of ideographs currently in use and it suits the requirements of general users.
Description : The use of a 2-byte encoding unit will increase processing efficiency and the speed of information transmission also becomes faster. These features meet the requirements of general data processing. Hexadecimal encoding is used as data processors are accustomed to this numbering method and it is the simplest way to represent a 2-byte unit. All control codes are avoided, which are "00" to "20" and "7F" of the code set. A 7-bit code set has 94 code positions and a 2-byte code allows coding for 8, characters, to form one character plane.
Description : At the time of transmitting information, if the characters to be transmitted appeared in different character planes, the control codes used to switch character planes must be sent out first. In order to increase transmission efficiency, words that commonly appear together are defined in the same character plane to reduce the number of times having to switch between character planes. Description : Each character plane is coded in the order of total stroke count, then radicals and lastly, stroke order.
Users are only required to input the actual total stroke count of the character to find out the national standard code. Description of Character Sets 1 Standard Areas Plane One : In order to reduce the number of times required to convert character planes, most frequently used symbols, alphabets and radicals of Chinese characters are coded in character plane one. Coded characters and code areas are as follows: 1. Symbol Area The encoding area for symbols is planned at address to E of character plane one.
The area comprises a total of 3, code positions. Currently, the temporarily coded symbols are listed below : 1 1 x tab 2 28 x punctuation marks 3 89 x brackets and tabulation symbols 4 34 x general symbols 5 51 x academic symbols 6 31 x unit symbols 7 42 numerical symbols including 10 Arabic numerals, 20 Roman numerals and 12 Chinese numerals 8 foreign alphabets including 26 Capital English Alphabets, 26 Small English Alphabets, 24 Capital Greek Alphabets and 24 small Greek Alphabets.
Other than sourcing the 4, characters from the "Table of frequently used standard Chinese characters" published by the MOE, characters and 6 variants frequently used in High School and Primary School textbooks are also coded. Character Plane Two : Coding interval from to is encoded with 7, Chinese characters.
The character set includes 6, characters sourced from the "Table of less frequently used standard Chinese characters" published by the MOE and 1, more frequently used characters sourced from the MOE's "Table of rarely used standard Chinese characters" Character Plane Three : Coding interval from to is encoded with 6, Chinese characters. The character set is sourced from the first section of user-defined character plane 14, which was temporarily coded by the EDPC, Executive Yuan in June The character set includes 1 characters from the last section of user-defined character plane 14, which was temporarily coded by the EDPC, Executive Yuan in June ; 2 characters used in the Residency system and other organizations, ISO Chinese Ideographs Character Set, version 2 and frequently used characters in Information Technology enterprises.
The character set is sourced from the "Table of rarely used characters" published by the MOE, which have not been included in the previous four character planes. The character set includes characters that have not been included in the previous five character planes and the Chinese character variants published by the MOE which are under include 14 strokes. Character Plane Seven : The coding interval from to is encoded with 6, Chinese Characters. The character set includes characters that have not been included in the previous six character planes and the Chinese character variants published by MOE which are under include 15 strokes.
Chinese characters or symbols that have yet to be classified as national standard characters are coded in this area based on user requirements. The code has covered characters as defined in the four "Table of Standard Chinese Characters" namely in the categories of frequently used, less frequently used, rarely used and Chinese character variants. However, since the implementation of the on-line computerized Residency Information System, the characters used to construct the national population database have exceeded the national standard characters by some 30, characters used for names.
To enable data transmission and interchange for this type of character codes, the EDPC, Executive Yuan temporarily defined the interchange codes in user-defined areas: Character Plane Coding interval from to 6D39 is encoded with 6, Chinese characters. Ideographs are sourced from the 15th character plane of the Residency Information System. For easier understanding, existing ideographs and definitions are used. However, amongst the 7, characters defined in character plane 15 of the Residency Information System, there are 2 self-repeating characters and repeated characters that were already included in the first 7 CNS character planes.
To avoid the situation of "one word, two codes", repeated parts are deleted to save the Household Registration and Military Service departments from having to repetitively convert codes; the spaces originally occupied by repeated characters are left blank after deletion. Use G0 character plane by SI, Lock method. Use G1 character plane by SO, Lock method. Use G2 character plane by LS2, Lock method. Use G3 character plane by LS3, Lock method. Use G2 character plane by SS2, Non-lock method.
Use G3 character plane by SS3, Non-lock-in method. For convenience, when the terminal facilities are turned on, the three character sets G0, G1, G2 can be set as ASCII, character plane one and character plane two respectively, and character set G3 can be set as other frequently used character plane.
The Big-5E character set collects 3 radical characters from CNS character plane 1, 3, characters from CNS character plane 3 and 59 frequently used Chinese characters in documents that are defined in CNS character plane 5. They are made up by 6, characters from CNS character planes 1,2,3, 2, characters from character plane 4, characters from character plane 5, characters from character plane 6, characters from character plane 7 and 86 characters from character plane The fact that our national standards are compatible with international standards, is not only going to provide domestic computer manufacturers with a competitive edge in the international market, but in future, when ISO and Unicode are fully developed, Chinese character codes used currently can also be successfully interchanged.
History The EDPC, Executive Yuan was appointed to assist with the problem experienced by many governmental organizations using the Big-5 Code that user-defined characters in electronically transmitted memorandums cannot be successfully interchanged. Encoding Principles of Big-5 Plus 1 Length is kept at double byte. Source of the character set 1 Source of Big-5 plus characters The internally defined character sets of Big-5 are identical to that of CNS character planes 1 and 2.
Thus, Big-5 Plus codes completed in July as part of the extension project also used CNS as the blueprint with "standard character set" and "recommended character set" being completed. The 4, glyphs in the "standard character set" are frequently used Chinese characters in normal documents. Of the 4, glyphs, 4, characters were included in the CNS character plane 3 and characters were included in character plane 4. Piccolo C. Sobrero L. Cortese M. Ferrari M. Di Francesco F. Lazzeri G.

However, they often encounter accessibility problems. Our challenge is to improve their situation by providing easy-to-use HTML5 specifications to developers.
To understand, define and bring solutions to colour-blind people who interact with web interfaces, we are going to conduct user tests with them based on the eye tracking technology. This will allow us to define a corpus of usability rules, according to the level of deficiency of the colour-blind persons. These rules will help us to develop solutions, validate them with other user tests and later develop HTML5 specifications that can be used in CSS.
The challenge is not only helping developers with easy-to-use HTML5 markups, but also make them aware of the situation and together build a better Internet with more accessible websites.

The mission of this group is to specify and build a reference implementation of Decentralized Communications. Decentralized Communications enables natively inter-operable communication services that are able to trustfully use peer to peer connections without having to use central authorities or services. Decentralized Comms are inherently inter-operable without using standard protocols by using the Protocol on-the-fly concept, where the most appropriate protocol stack to be used, is selected and instantiated at run-time.
Created on 8 April 19 Participants. The goal is to work on interoperable sharing between decentralized platforms. The idea is not to design the perfect protocol but find a consensus that would lead to an interoperable data exchange with sync capabilities, access control, discovery, etc. Created on 25 January 23 Participants. The group will discuss and tentatively specify a format for representing decisions, i. Because of the great variety of applications and decision technologies, this format should focus on the generic, core components of decisions and decision-making information.
Decisions are a source of information in themselves, i. The same holds for information about the decision process. In particular, this group will discuss and study how Semantic Web technologies can facilitate the representation and sharing of decision information. Ultimately, the aim of the group is to study and develop technologies and methods to support better, rapid, and agile decision making. Created on 29 June 57 Participants. The mission of the Declarative 3D for the Web Architecture Community Group is to determine the requirements, options, and use cases for an integration of interactive 3D graphics capabilities into the W3C technology stack.
This group is aimed to extract core features out of the requirements as foundation to propose feasible technical solutions. These should cover the majority of 3D use cases for the Web - but not necessarily all of them. There are upcoming open e. The goal of this CG is to evaluate the necessary requirements for a successful standardization of a declarative approach to interactive 3D graphics as part of HTML documents.
Created on 18 February 67 Participants. The mission of this group is to produce a specification that describes how Web and Linked Data applications can be built using declarative technologies only, minimizing the need for source code. Current software development models involve writing source code mostly in imperative languages and building programs from it. Source code is prone to bugs, and managing it requires developers.
The declarative approach is instead to push as much application logic from source code to data, so that the application can be managed and reused as data itself, while the software become generic and application-independent. This approach is related to functional languages and to processing pipelines. The generic software works as a processor: it takes the incoming request and the declarative application description and runs it through a pipeline, first retrieving the state of the requested resource or changing it and then rendering it into the requested format, such as a Web page.

Matching entities across data sources using different identifiers and formats is a pervasive issue on the web. This group revolves around developing a web API that data providers can expose, which eases the reconciliation of third-party data to their own identifiers. OpenRefine's reconciliation API is used as a starting point. Our goals are to document this existing API, share our experiences and lessons learnt from it, propose an improved protocol in the view of promoting it as a standard, and build tooling around it. Created on 17 July 25 Participants. Structural interoperability defines the syntax of the data exchange and ensures the data exchanged between systems can be interpreted at the data field level.
In comparison, semantic interoperability leverages the structural interoperability of the data exchange, but provides a vocabulary so other systems and consumers can also interpret the data. Analytics produced by xAPI statements would benefit from more consistent and semantic approaches to describing domain-specific verbs. The xAPI specification recommends implementers to adopt community-defined vocabularies, but the only current guidance is to provide very basic, human-readable identifier metadata e.
The main objective of the Vocabulary and Semantic Interoperability Working Group WG is to research machine-readable, semantic technologies e. Created on 22 October 31 Participants. Semantic data is available widely and semantic data exploration is becoming a key activity in a range of application domains, such as government organisations, education, life science, cultural heritage, and media. Although on the rise, the current solutions are still maturing and need to take into account human factors to make exploration intuitive or employ necessary computational models to aid the intuitiveness and improve the effectiveness of exploration tasks.
Lessons also can be learned from the commonalities and differences in exploration requirements between different domains. Hence, greater benefits can be achieved by bringing together expertise from different communities, including HCI, Semantic Web, and personalisation with the potential application domain demands. This group is an effort to bring these community together to benefit from the mutual experiences in solving some new and exciting problems. Created on 10 March 7 Participants. Created on 4 June 18 Participants. The wealth of data about cultural heritage collections held within archives world-wide is of great interest for humanities research and education activities.

The expected deliverables of this community group are 1 documented use cases, 2 technical requirements for implementing those secure services in user agents, 3 draft APIs, 4 group charter - integrating suggested improvements received during the W3C Hardware Security WG charter proposal review.
Note : by hardware tokens, we mean technologies such as secure chips or secure elements, trusted execution environment, TPM Created on 29 May 42 Participants. Created on 6 September 52 Participants. This community group is focused on bringing high performance computing HPC to the web.
In particular, we're interested in making the computing and data resources that underlie simulation science, scientific computing, and data-centric science easily accessible through web browsers. The major goal of this community is to accelerate the pace of development of web-based HPC applications.
Recognizing that we can build on each other's work, and that a consistent approach to developing such tools can enable features that require communication across multiple computing centers, we are interested in sharing technologies and ideas. Created on 10 June 23 Participants. Create an ongoing conversation space around data standards in the human service sector that will involve stakeholders from multiple perspectives including: 1a.
Diverse substantive areas e. Diverse stakeholder purposes including exchange of data for operational purposes and collection of data for performance measurement, evaluation and policy research. Facilitate the development, improvement and convergence of human service data standards, vocabularies, ontologies, and domain models by: 2a. Fostering wider recognition of existing efforts and artifacts; 2b. Analyzing the strengths, limitations, and areas of overlap, agreement and divergence of existing efforts and artifacts; 2c.
Identifying areas where standards do not yet exist but are needed; 2d. Convening working groups of diverse composition to develop and improve standards; 2e. Promoting the adoption of standards. This includes but is not limited to information and referral services, income support and other welfare benefits, employment training, homelessness, substance abuse, mental health, child welfare, juvenile justice, domestic violence, and senior services. The borders between the human service sector on the one hand and the health, education and justice sectors on the other hand are not firmly defined.
The community group will be open to working on any area that is related to the human services and is not entirely within the boundaries of the health, education or justice sectors. Deliverables To be determined. Created on 17 June Participants. Building Web APIs seems still more an art than a science.
How can we build APIs such that generic clients can easily use them? And how do we build those clients? However, this only allows for very simple and brittle clients that are hardcoded against specific APIs. Hydra, in contrast, is a set of technologies that allow to design APIs in a different manner, in a way that enables smarter clients.
The foundation is laid by the Hydra Core Vocabulary. It defines a number of fundamental concepts, such as hypermedia controls and collections, which allow machines to understand how to interact with an API. Since all information about the API is available in a machine-readable form, completely generic clients become possible. Created on 1 March Participants. Created on 7 November 43 Participants.
