shepazu: hi Doug
15:51:27 [glazou]
got my email ?
15:51:29 [shepazu]
hi, Daniel
15:51:32 [shepazu]
I did
15:51:43 [shepazu]
I wish you'd sent it before :)
15:51:57 [glazou]
yes I know, but I only thought about it today
15:52:10 [glazou]
having next/previousElementSibling on Node would help a lot
15:52:26 [glazou]
I saw that hacking mozilla composer today
15:52:43 [glazou]
plenty of locations where we start from an arbitrary Node and look for adjacent element
15:52:48 [shepazu]
15:52:56 [shepazu]
I can totally see the use case
15:52:58 [krijnh]
Bert: What are you going to talk about at Fronteers 2008?
15:53:00 [glazou]
15:53:21 [Bert]
I don't know yet, krijnh :-)
15:53:41 [krijnh]
Just spotted the announcement on
15:54:20 [Bert]
Are you a member of the Fronteers?
15:54:23 [krijnh]
15:54:31 [krijnh]
Board member even, if the ALV lets me :)
15:54:37 [krijnh]
And I've built the site
15:54:49 [krijnh]
I'm the de facto treasurer atm
15:54:53 [krijnh]
15:54:56 [krijnh]
15:54:58 [krijnh]
15:55:05 [krijnh]
Yeah, me too
15:56:06 [krijnh]
15:56:12 [krijnh]
Had to pimp my CMS a bit..
15:56:31 [Zakim]
Style_CSS FP()12:00PM has now started
15:56:38 [Zakim]
15:56:38 [krijnh]
But anyway, just wondering what you were going to talk about :)
15:56:44 [Zakim]
16:00:25 [Zakim]
16:00:52 [glazou]
shepazu: you want me to send that comment to the WG ?
16:01:28 [shepazu]
glazou: you can if you like, but it might be something for v2
16:01:38 [glazou]
no problem
16:02:08 [krijnh]
(Hmm, are the logs broken for this channel, or did I turn them off?)
16:02:13 [glazou]
but how ware you going to deal with the fact the method will be defined on Element first and then on Node ?
16:02:17 [shepazu]
in fact, yes, that should be on public record, glazou
16:02:18 [glazou]
16:02:21 [Zakim]
16:03:46 [melinda]
melinda has joined #CSS
16:04:03 [shepazu]
glazou: no conflict... ElTrav v1 deals only with the Element node while v2 could also extend the more generic Node interface

Topic: Mobile Profile
16:10:44 [Bert]
Daniel: Svante asked for editorial changes in the CR.
16:11:00 [Bert]
Daniel: One is a link that Bert changed in the mean time.
16:11:11 [fantasai]
seems reasonable to me
16:11:28 [Bert]
Daniel: The other is "character set" -> "character encoding" because the wrong term was used.
16:11:53 [Bert]
Peter: Have to check with CSS 2.1 that term is used consistently.
16:12:06 [Bert]
Daniel: Third change is a missing space.
16:13:01 [Bert]
Decided to change and republish
16:13:16 [fantasai]
Zakim, unmute me
16:13:16 [Zakim]
fantasai should no longer be muted
16:13:22 [Bert]
Bert: Edits either by me or Svante. I can do the publication.

Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 56
16:15:24 [Bert]
Daniel: Was postponed for MS to investigate.
16:16:05 [Bert]
Fantasai: Anybody object to proposal?
16:16:12 [fantasai]
RESOLVED: text-decoration should propagate through table elements
16:16:38 [Bert]
Fantasai: Do you need time to review the wording?
16:16:41 [fantasai]
Postpone decision to accept wording, need more time
16:16:58 [fantasai]

16:17:54 [Bert]
Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 14
16:18:17 [fantasai]
16:19:07 [Bert]
Daniel: We need David Baron for this issue.
16:19:17 [Bert]
Fantasai: Bert found something in the spec.
16:19:25 [glazou]
fantasai: really hard to hear you...
16:20:12 [Bert]
16:20:13 [fantasai]
16:22:09 [Bert]
Bert: I agree with the proposal, but also think that in addition height <> auto means bottom doesn't collapse with children.
16:22:14 [Bert]
Fantasai: That is a separate issue.
16:22:30 [fantasai]
16:22:36 [fantasai]
16:22:45 [Bert]
Daniel: Seems we need to do this issue at the ftf.
16:22:59 [Bert]
Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 42
16:23:24 [fantasai] is probably easier
16:23:45 [Bert]
16:23:52 [Bert]
Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 53
16:27:35 [Bert]
Bert explains proposal, need to distingush justify in blocks and whiet space stretching for inline.
16:27:42 [Bert]
Daniel: Seems proposal is fine.
16:27:53 [Bert]
Peter: Need to check implementations as well.
16:28:00 [Bert]
Howcome: no comment.
16:28:07 [Bert]
Sylaving: Do we know what impls do?
16:28:22 [Bert]
16:28:36 [Bert]
Daniel: That would be good to know.
16:29:09 [Bert]
Peter: We may assume Moz is willing to change to proposal, how about others?
16:29:28 [Bert]
Daniel: Need test cases.
16:29:56 [fantasai]
ACTION: fantasai get a testcase for css2.1 issue 53
16:29:56 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-89 - Get a testcase for css2.1 issue 53 [on Elika Etemad - due 2008-08-20].
16:30:07 [fantasai]
16:30:17 [Bert]
Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 54
16:31:22 [Bert]
Daniel: Proposal makes sense.
16:32:01 [Bert]
Peter: Do we need to clarify *which* element determines the direction for the marker?
16:32:25 [Bert]
Daniel: I think the proposaed text cavers it.
16:32:31 [fantasai]
Elika: I think it's pretty obviously the list item element itself
16:32:47 [Bert]
Bert: fine with proposal.
16:33:11 [fantasai]
Melinda: So if we have a list that is predominantly ltr, but one item is rtl, it will put the marker on the other side?
16:33:12 [Bert]
Melinda: So if only one item in the list is rtl, it puts that marker on the other side?
16:33:16 [Bert]
Daniel: Yes.
16:33:31 [sylvaing]
no objection
16:33:41 [Bert]
Peter: Is that what we want?
16:34:25 [Bert]
Daniel: Case would be a list with English and a few Hebrew items.
16:34:55 [Bert]
Fantasai: [something] does [something] [Scribe can't hear]
16:35:02 [fantasai]
Elika: We have interoperability on all four implementations
16:35:50 [Bert]
Daniel: OK, so then the prose must be clear that direction is direction of list item itself.
16:35:53 [Bert]
16:36:31 [Bert]
Fantasai: The text already has that.
16:36:41 [Bert]
Daniel: Or add a note with an example.
16:36:52 [Bert]
Fantasai: I think that's already there.
16:37:23 [Bert]
Peter: Use words "of the element"
16:37:46 [fantasai]
Proposal is s/elements/list items/
16:37:58 [fantasai]
RESOLVED: proposal accepted with change above
16:38:36 [Bert]
Topic: CSS 2.1 issue 60
16:38:54 [Bert]
Fantasai: Cannot be done on phone, needs in depth review.
16:39:14 [fantasai]

Daniel: So action for everyone to review before ftf. Will be on ftf agenda.
16:39:37 [fantasai]
Zakim, mute me
16:39:37 [Zakim]
fantasai should now be muted
16:39:46 [Bert]
Fantasai: That should be all we can do for CSS 2.1 today.
16:40:05 [fantasai]

fantasai should no longer be muted

Topic: Pages counter
16:40:41 [glazou]
16:40:43 [Bert]
Howcome: I sent an e-mail. Q is if 'pages' counter should be in Paged Media.
16:40:54 [Bert]
Melinda: We didn't have implementations for it.
16:41:16 [Bert]
Melinda: But would be nice to be able to put it back in
16:41:21 [glazou]
sorry wrong url
