CSS Display Level 3 Updated

By fantasai September 27, 2014 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

About a fortnight ago, the CSS WG published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Display Level 3. This module describes how the CSS formatting box tree is generated from the document element tree and defines properties (like the display property) that control the types of boxes thus generated.

Significant changes since CSS2.1 include:

Significant changes since the previous draft are listed in the Changes section.

We have a couple of key issues open that we would particularly like feedback on:

Our plan going forward is to resolve all the open issues (obviously), defer the longhands of display to another level[1], and hopefully transition to CR in the next six months.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-display]) and your comment topic in the subject line. Alternatively, you can email the editors and ask them to forward your comment, or post a comment here.

CSS Flexbox Level 1 Revision 1 Update, Call for Comments

The CSS Working Group has published another Last Call of CSS Flexible Box Layout Level 1 in response to feedback on the recent changes. Flexbox is a new layout model for CSS: the contents of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, can be reordered, can be aligned and justified within their container, and can “flex” their sizes and positions to respond to the available space. This is an update to fix various problems, particularly in the layout algorithm, found through implementation review and experience during the Candidate Recommendation phase. As before, the CSSWG is not revoking the call for implementations: we’re just issuing an LCWD to process the changes.

To help with review and with correctly updating implementations, exact diffs since the original Candidate Recommendation, and their justifications, are available in the Changes section. A Disposition of Comments is also available. The Last Call comment period ends 25 October 2014: please either send comments by then, or request an extension; we plan to process them during TPAC.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-flexbox]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
