Last Call for CSS3 Cascade

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 3. This CSS module describes how to collate style rules and assign values to all properties on all elements by way of cascading (choosing a winning declaration among many) and inheritance (propagating values from parent to child). Notable additions since CSS2.1 include:

Significant changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the changes section and include changes to the all shorthand to exclude bidi controls and the replacement of the default keyword with unset (which has different semantics). (The draft also received an editorial overhaul.)

The deadline for comments is 26 August 2013. Please send comments to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-cascade-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment. If you need an extension, please request one before the deadline so we can accommodate.
