Wikipedia: SMIL

SMIL (pronounced /ˈsmaɪl/ "smile"), the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language, is a W3C recommended XML markup language for describing multimedia presentations. It defines markup for timing, layout, animations, visual transitions, and media embedding, among other things. SMIL allows the presentation of media items such as text, images, video, and audio, as well as links to other SMIL presentations, and files from multiple web servers. SMIL markup is written in XML, and has similarities to HTML.

Is SMIL still under development? Nov 12, 2008

I read a little about SMIL about 6 months ago. I remember that since SMIL is so complex, it would cause much trouble to programmers, no subtitle software developer was willing to support it by then.

SMIL format standard was under development up to six months ago. I do not know if it have been completed and I am not sure if any program can support it by now.
