Smil Timesheets

Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) is an HTML-like language for creating multimedia presentations. SMIL timesheets are a part of this, acting as the layout and timing control mechanism for presenting media elements. They specify when and where multimedia components such as text, images, audio, video or animations should appear on screen in relation to one another. Using SMIL timesheets makes it possible to create synchronized multimedia experiences without using scripting languages.
