XPointer becomes a W3C Candidate Recommendation
12:32, 8 Jun 2000 UTC | Edd Dumbill

The W3C's XPointer, a language used to reference XML fragments, has entered Candidate Recommendation phase, where implementation experience is solicited from developers.

Developed by the W3C XML Linking Working Group, XPointer builds upon the XPath language to enable precise pointing into the structure of XML documents.

Now the spec has exited Last Call stage, the "disposition" of comments received in response to XPointer has been posted online.

Interestingly, the XPointer CR notes that Sun Microsystems have a patent that may cover parts of XPointer. Updates on this situation will be sent to the XML Linking comments mailing list.
