CSS Masking Draft Updated

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group and the SVG Working Group have published an updated Working Draft of CSS Masking. CSS Masking provides two means for partially or fully hiding portions of visual elements: masking and clipping.

With this draft, CSS Masking integrates better with terms and definitions of the CSS Backgrounds and Borders module. The syntax of the ‘mask’ shorthand property is conformant with the ‘background’ shorthand property. Authors can switch between alpha and luminance masking on mask-image now. The IDL definitions of SVGMaskElement and SVGClipPathElement were adapted to use WebIDL.
Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

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