W3C and IDPF Officially Combine Organizations

After seven months of debate over the merger, the International Digital Publishing Forum, developer of the EPUB e-book format, and the W3C, the internet standards organization founded by Tim Berners-Lee, have officially combined organizations.

George Kerscher, IDPF President and Chief Innovations Officer for the DAISY Consortium, said that the merger of the two organizations will ensure that EPUB will remain a standard relevant to the future of the global online and print community. “By combining our organizations, we not only align our technology roadmaps, but also accelerate the adoption of content that is natively accessible and device-friendly for all types of publishing, whether you are reading on the Web or offline.”  More information is provided in the official W3C press release.
