The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has decided that version 4.0 of Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML) is now stable enough to earn its "recommendation" tag. It will now go forward to be reviewed by its 220 member organisations who will vote on its ratification. HTML V4.0 has been through the working draft, proposed recommendation, and now recommendation periods which means the W3C's director, Tim Berners-Lee, must put it to vote. The current recommended version of HTML is 3.2 which was recommended in January. New features in V4.0 include advanced forms, support for rich HTML, the ability to build keyboard shortcuts into page controls, in-line frames and enhanced tables.
