Updated CSS Drafts: Images, Regions, Writing Modes

Going backwards in time as I try to catch up…

CSS Images [css3-image]

On 12 July 2011, the CSSWG published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Image Values and Replaced Content Module Level 3. Among other significant changes, this publication switches the linear-gradient() angles to bearing angles (compass directions) with 0deg pointing up due to overwhelming feedback that this made more sense.

Next up, Tab is planning to change the syntax for keywords to make them less confusable. If you have good suggestions, send them over to www-style.

CSS Regions [css3-regions]

On 9 June 2011, the CSSWG published aa First Public Working Draft of the CSS Regions Module. This module defines linked flows between different regions (boxes) on the page. CSS Regions is still in the early stages, so expect lots of changes as we figure out the right way to do things. You can check out the latest in the unofficial editor’s draft.

CSS Writing Modes [css3-writing-modes]

On 31 May 2011, we also published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3. Most of the changes were detail-oriented as we dive into the ambiguous nitty-gritty of how to typeset vertical text.

As always, send feedback to www-style with the appropriate [spec-code] and your comment topic in the subject line.
