Web Annotation Repository

Documents produced by the Web Annotation Working Group of the W3C. The Working Group has published its recommendations, and is now closed; see the separate list of the published documents.

This repository is now under the control of the W3C Open Annotation Community Group. Everyone is welcome adding issues to the repository, clearly marked as errata or proposals for future work (see the errata page for the details). The Community group's mailing list is another avenue for further discussion; please, join the Community Group if you are interested in the topic.
