ISSUE-23: Is 'discontinuous' a better name than 'each-box' in 'background-break'

each-box or discontinuous

Is 'discontinuous' a better name than 'each-box' in 'background-break'

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders
Raised by:
Bert Bos
Opened on:
2008-04-04
Description:
The keyword 'each-box' means that background images are sized and positioned in each of the boxes of an element individually: images that do not repeat occur once in every box; images that are resized are resized differently in each of the boxes, etc.

This is contrasted with the keyword 'continuous', which means that all the element's boxes are laid one after the other, the image is tiled and sized over the resulting large area, and then the boxes are put back to where they belong on the page.
