Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

The Director is pleased to announce the approval of the Web Editing
Working Group charter:

This group is chartered until 09 June 2023.

The mission of the Web Editing Working Group is to explore limitations
in existing browser primitives, provide use cases for new APIs and
suggest solutions either by standardizing of existing behaviors or
introducing new APIs relevant for text editing. The goal is to
facilitate the creation of fully-featured editing systems as well as
small editors using JavaScript.

Use the following form to join the group. The form will also instruct
you how to nominate participants:

Please consider diversity when proposing people to participate in W3C
groups. Representation from a wider group of people, especially people
from under-represented groups, is vital for creating web standards that
meet the needs of the wider web community.

The Working Group chairs are Johannes Wilm (W3C Invited Expert) and
Grisha Lyukshin (Microsoft). The initial Team Contact is Xiaoqian Wu
<xiaoqian@...> with 0.1 FTE.

The group plans to have its first major virtual meeting during TPAC 2021.

More information about the Web Editing Working Group can be found on its
home page:

Results of Charter Call for Review

We called for charter review on 13 Apr 2021:

Thanks to the 28 Members who provided input:

26 supported the charter including 2 suggested changes, and 1 abstained.
These suggestions did not lead to a change in the charter.

1 formally objected and asked for clarification of the scope. After
discussion with the objector, an addition was made to the in-scope
section that the group would work on DOM level manipulation of elements
inside of contenteditable elements. This change satisfied the objector
and received no objection from the other Members who responded to the
Call for Review.

This announcement follows section 7.1.2 of the W3C Process Document:

and the Call for Participation follows section 5.2.4 of the W3C Process
