Do you want to know how the CSS WG works? Fantasai has written about:csswg, An Inside View of the CSS Working Group at W3C.
The CSS Working Group has just published a Last Call Working Draft of the CSS Multi-column Layout module Level 3. This module defines properties to flow content into multiple columns, a common layout feature in print publications such as newspapers. Major changes since the last publication include changes to the syntax of column-breaking controls and an example of text wrapping around floats in a later column.
The deadline for comments is 1 October 2009. This is an unusually-long Last Call period because we want to encourage a wider review of the module and to make sure implementors are ready for everything in the draft to be locked down for CR. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org with [css3-multicol] and your comment topic in the subject header. (And if you insist on posting your comments elsewhere, at least have someone forward them there. Seriously.)
