The purpose of the WHATWG Wiki is to create a place for WHATWG contributors to post and compile their own proposals and ideas regarding WHATWG specifications. The specifications themselves will not be available for editing via this wiki. However, ideas you post here may find their way into current and future WHATWG specifications.

Welcome to the WHATWG Wiki!

You can be a part of our community, making proposals for web standards. This wiki is made available for you for drafting proposals, for writing essays, for keeping track of WHATWG spec-related issues, and so forth.

Before you begin, you may wish to read our contribution guidelines. Once you are an autoconfirmed user, you may create new user accounts, by request.
