A new draft of the Compound Document Framework and WICD Profiles was released last week by the W3C and is available here. CDF/WICD (or whatever they end up calling it) is an important specification that will help to define how browsers should deal with "compound documents". An example is an XHTML document that has SVG elements embedded in it. As XML continues to replace HTML as the language of the web, such a specification becomes more and more important.

And it's great bedside reading, too!
