4  Required Mark-up Supportp. 7

4.1  Introductionp. 7

The present document defines a 3GPP HTML5 profile for use in 3GPP services, such as PSS [2], MBMS [3] and MMS [5]. In this clause, the set of required mark-up and APIs for the 3GPP HTML5 profile is defined.
The present document defines requirements and recommendations for Applications and UEs conforming to the 3GPP HTML5 Profile.

4.2  Markupp. 7

The HTML5 [1] specification defines conformance requirements for user-agents and documents:
  • Applications shall comply with conformance requirements for documents in [1].
  • UEs shall comply with conformance requirements for user agents as defined in [1].

4.3  Stylep. 7

4.3.1  Introductionp. 7

Support for CSS as a whole is not required by HTML5, even though some features are defined in terms of specific CSS requirements. This clause defines requirements for CSS and other style and/or graphic related technologies.

4.3.2  Basic Graphicp. 7

  • UEs shall support CSS 2.1 [9].
  • UEs shall support CSS Color Module Level 3 [12].
  • UEs shall support CSS Image Values and Replaced Content Module Level 3 [15].
  • UEs shall support CSS Backgrounds and Borders [16].
  • UEs should support CSS Basic User Interface [14].

4.3.3  Device Adaptation, Layout and Processingp. 7

  • UEs should support CSS Media Queries [17].
  • UEs should support CSS Flexible Box Layout [19].

4.3.4  Advanced Graphicp. 7

  • UEs shall support the CSS Transforms [10].
  • UEs shall support CSS Transitions [11].
  • UEs shall support CSS Animations [18].

4.4  Scriptingp. 8

Scripts are small programs that can be embedded into applications. While defining features that rely on scripting, HTML5 does not mandate support for scripting for all user-agents. Furthermore, scripting is defined using a syntax that in most cases is independent from the underlying scripting language. For such reasons, the present document has additional requirements as defined in this clause.
  • UEs shall support scripting as defined in [1].
  • UEs shall support ECMA scripting language [13].

5  API Supportp. 8

A number of specifications from W3C or other organizations define APIs that provide additional functionalities to applications. This clause lists the specifications that SHALL and SHOULD be supported by a UE.
  • UEs shall support the Forms API [1].
  • UEs shall support the Canvas API [22].
  • UEs shall support the XMLHttpRequest API [23].
  • UEs shall support the Media Source Extensions [24].
  • UEs shall support the ISO BMFF Byte Stream Format [25] with the MIME type and subtypes audio/mp4 and video/mp4.
  • UEs should support the GeoLocation API [21].
  • UEs should support the Encrypted Media Extensions [26].
  • UEs should support the Web Socket API [8] with the protocol defined in RFC 6455 [28].
  • UEs should support the Server-Sent Events API [7].
  • UEs should support the WebCrypto API [27].

6  Service-Specific Aspectsp. 8

6.1  Introductionp. 8

Additional requirements and usage restrictions are necessary depending on the service type that uses the 3GPP HTML5 profile. In this clause, these aspects are addressed.

6.2  DASHp. 8

When an HTML5 presentation uses DASH [4] for media streaming, then the HTML5 presentation may reference one or more DASH presentations through a reference to the MPD either as a source of an HTML5 media element or as a reference from one of the referenced resources.
The user agent should support DASH MPD as a supported MIME type for its source elements and attributes, in which case the DASH playback is done by the user agent.
