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 WG has published a Last Call Working Draft of the CSS3 Image Values and Replaced Content. This module covers:
element()notation for using an elements’ graphical representation as an image.
object-positionfor controlling aspect ratio preservation.
image-resolutionfor using explicit or intrinsic image resolutions.
image-orientationto correct mis-rotated images.
Note that replaced elements in CSS includes not just bitmap images, but also SVG (external or embedded), video, applets, plugins, and other “foreign” objects.
There have been significant changes to gradients over the past year.
If you have comments on any part of the draft, please, send them to the (archived) email@example.com mailing list. Start a new thread for each issue, and include
[css3-images] in the subject line. This will help us track your comments. (And please, if you can’t/won’t post to www-style, email the editors instead of posting randomly into the ether.)
We welcome editorial suggestions, additional examples, diagrams, or anything else that will help to make the spec more understandable.
The official deadline for comments is 7 February 2012. Let us know if you need an extension so that we don’t miss your comments.
