CSS Regions Draft Updated

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Regions.

CSS Regions allows you to collect content in a named flow, then directly define where this content flows through boxes in a region chain.

This new draft contains many improvements to the CSSOM section, as well as scattered improvements throughout. The issues list for CSS Regions has gone from 24 in the last draft to 4 today. The region-overset property has its new name, and the flow-into property now has keywords that choose whether an element or its content is placed into a named flow. Region styling is now accessed through a ::region() pseudo-element instead of an @region rule.

All of the changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

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