Editorial Issues for Angles

State:

Product:
CSS3 Values and Units
Raised by:

Description:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Mar/0172.html

| Angle values (denoted by <angle> in the text) are used with aural cascading style sheets.

It should be noted that they might be used by other parts of CSS, too. Skewing and rotating are frequently requested, e.g. for table headers, even if current plans might restrict usage to intervals of 90°. Of course <angle> actually should have been used for the hue value in 'hsl()' and 'hsla()'. <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005Jul/0319.html>

| deg: degrees
| grad: grads
| rad: radians
| turn: turns

These should be briefly explained by giving their number per full angle, i.e. 360, 400, 2·π, 1. The description of 'grad' should include a mention of the alternative name "gon".
