Young Love's first lesson is -- the heart: For 'mid that sunshine, and those smiles, When, from our little cares apart, And laughing at her girlish wiles, I'd throw me on her throbbing breast, And pour my spirit out in tears - There was no need to speak the rest - No need to quiet any fears Of her - who ask'd no reason why, But turn'd on me her quiet eye!

The W3C's SMIL Recommendations have been prepared by the Synchronized Multimedia Working Group (SYMM-WG), which over the years has included representatives from the following organizations: Alcatel, Apple, CNET/DSM, Canon, Compaq, CSELT, CWI, DAISY Consortium, DEC, Ericsson, France Telecom, Gateway, Glocomm, GMD, Havas, IBM, INRIA, Intel, Lucent/Bell Labs, Macromedia, Microsoft, Netscape/AOL, NIST, Nokia, Oratrix, Pana sonic, Philips, The Productivity Works, RealNetworks, WGBH, and the W3C.
The full.specification of SMIL 1.0, Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) 1.0 Specification, was endorsed as a W3C Recommendation in June 1998.
The SYMM Working Group also produced Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) 2.0, which was endorsed as a W3C Recommendation in August 2001.
This profile, published as a W3C Note, describes the SMIL modules that are added to XHTML to add timing, animation, and multimedia functionality to XHTML elements.
Meanwhile, as a specification, the Note revises a previous Working Draft of the same title previously available in, but now removed from, SMIL 2.0.
If you are a multimedia-standards believer and want a full-featured SMIL authoring tool, one vendor offers a truly robust offering: Oratrix and its GRiNS Editor for RealOne and GRiNS Pro Editor for SMIL 2.0.
He admits that "the adoption has been frustratingly slow," but people will eventually "want to add value to media content that only SMIL can provide."
Recapping, by reusing content in SMIL presentations, you guarantee consistency, accuracy, and get more value from your content management system.
