ISSUE-18: Different name for 'background-size'

bg-size rename

Different name for 'background-size'

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders
Raised by:
Bert Bos
Opened on:
2008-04-04
Description:
Some people read 'background-size' as specifying the size of the area to fill (i.e., like 'background-clip'), rather than as the size of a background image.

Suggested alternatives:

'background-stretch' (although images often shrink, too)

'background-sizing'

'background-fill' http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Jan/0537.html

'background-fit' http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Jan/0535.html

'Background-image-size'
