"The group aims to develop specifications based on HTML and related
technologies to ease the deployment of interoperable Web Applications,
with the intention of submitting the results to a standards organisation.

"This working group aims to make [the] development [of Web Applications]

make much prettier and more usable interfaces with less dependence on
complex scripts, less dependence on server-generated pages, and a more
