Style Activity Statement

This page was previously used to give a biannual summary of recent developments in CSS. Currently, updates are irregular.

Many people are accustomed to style sheets in word-processing. W3C's style sheets offer extensive control over the presentation of Web pages. The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) language is widely implemented. It is playing an important role in styling not just HTML, but also many kinds of XML documents: XHTML, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) and SMIL (the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language), to name a few. It is also an important means of adapting pages to different devices, such as mobile phones or printers.

W3C is also developing the Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL, see the XML Activity Statement). XSL applies a “style sheet” to transform one XML-based document into another. XSL and CSS can be combined.

W3C has a page on CSS resources, including browsers, authoring tools and tutorials.

The Current work page gives an overview of the various specifications the group is developing, roughly in order of priority. The page is regularly updated.

The new features in CSS generally in fall in one of two categories: GUIs and document layout.

Summary of Activity Structure

See the CSS Home Page for up-to-date information about CSS and the specifications by the CSS Working Group.

The Working Group was called “CSS & FP WG” from 1997 to 2000.

This Activity Statement includes data generated from group data.
