ISSUE-213: Advance notice of deprecation for textOutline

text outline

Advance notice of deprecation for textOutline

State:
OPEN
Product:
TTML2
Raised by:
Pierre-Anthony Lemieux
Opened on:
2013-05-23
Description:
All of the major browsers have declined to implement text-outline, and as a result it is dropped from CSS3. Instead they have adopted text-shadow which is probably sufficient for our needs.

e.g. try :
.region {
background-color:grey;
}
p {
color:white;
text-shadow: 0px 0px 1px black , 0px 0px 3px black, 0px 0px 3px black;
}

I suggest we put a note in the SE to the effect that we intend to deprecate this in v.next and replace it in v-next with textShadow.

Related notes:

SMPTE has requested support for both text-outline and text-shadow (see ISSUE-235). Perhaps simply add note emphasizing that text-outline support is limited.

CSS3 draft of text shadow allows multiple outlines to be specified in the same term. So can handle the look of outlining and shadowing.

CSS3 text shadow allows for multiple shadows to be applied in the same term so can handle outlining and shadowing at the same time

Why would the fact that both textOutline and textShadow in TTML can map to the same text-shadow in CSS be a reason to deprecate textOutline in TTML, since existing documents probably already use textOutline?
