Silvia Pfeiffer appointed as an HTML5 co-editor

OWOOT member Silvia Pfeiffer has been appointed as part of the editorial team of the W3C HTML5 specification.

She writes:

[W]hen invited, I decided to offer my spare time to the W3C.

I’m giving this time under the condition that I’d only be looking at accessibility and video related sections. This is where my interest and expertise lie, and where I’m passionate to get things right. I want to make sure that we create accessibility features that will be implemented and that we polish existing video features. I want to make sure we don’t digress from implementations which continue to get updated and may follow the WHATWG spec or HTML.next or other needs.
