There is no doubt, How the internet is booming in India. Every organization is setting websites and a no of bloggers are increasing participation in web. There needed some one to look and take care of the web standards, technology and internationalization. Very few websites pass through the validation process of w3c. So to maintain the standards World Wide Web Consortium (w3c) announced they have an office in India last week in the conference organized by TDIL [Technology Development for Indian Languages]. The office is located in New Delhi.
"We want to see the Web for All and Web on everything and help to lead the web to its full potential," Ms. Swaran Lata Director & Head, Human Centered Computing Division and Manager of the new W3C India Office. "We look forward to promoting W3C standards all over India in all twenty-two constitutionally recognized Indian languages, and welcome this opportunity to bring together people in India who are interested in participating in the development of the future Web."
"Increased participation from India will strengthen W3C's international community," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO. "I look forward to partnering with TDIL so that we build the W3C community in India, including drawing Membership from key industrial and academic leaders. The upcoming conference is an important first step."
This is going to help a lot for solving multilingual challenges of web such as Internationalized Domain Names [IDN] and HTML 5 standards.
