The W3C is committed to leading the Web to its full potential, a goal that is closely aligned with the ideals of the Open Source community.
The W3C hosts a number of open source projects, such as Amaya (an HTML editor/browser), Jigsaw (an HTTP server), validator.w3.org (an online HTML/XML/CSS validator) and SiRPAC (an RDF parser). There is also a much larger body of open source projects surrounding the W3C, implementing the technologies and providing feedback to the development of the W3C specifications. Some examples include the Apache HTTP server, the Xerces XML parser, the Apache Batik SVG toolkit, the Mozilla Web browser and HTML tidy which is hosted by Sourceforge.
This presentation will briefly describe some of the projects that are related to W3C technologies, and how these implementations play a part in the W3C process. More importantly, it is an opportunity for the open source community to provide feedback to the W3C.
