_SMIL E-Journal Examples_
I am greatly interested in learning of Any and All e-journals that utilize
SMIL(tm) for markup and access of audio, video, animation, and other multimedia components.
As many are aware, SMIL(tm) [pronounced 'smile' :-)] is the
Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language
that "enables simple authoring of interactive audiovisual presentations. SMIL(tm) is typically used for 'rich media'/multimedia presentations which integrate streaming audio and video with images, text or any other media type"
[ http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/ ].
SMIL 2.0 is a World Wide Web Consortium Recommendation (August 2001)
"Based on XML, [SMIL(tm)] ... allows developers to mix many types of media, text, video, graphics, audio and vector based animation together and to synchronize them to a timeline"
[ http://www.wdvl.com/Authoring/Languages/XML/SMIL/Intro/index.html ]
I am aware of select multimedia e-journals and have listed most in M-Bed(sm), my registry devoted to "Embedded Multimedia Electronic Journals"
at [ http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/M-Bed.htm ]
[I do not believe that any of these utilize SMIL(tm) but will investigate]
As Always, Any and All contributions, comments, critiques, Speed Skating Upsets, Cosmic Insights, Etc. Etc. Etc. are Most Welcome!
