CSS Cascade Level 3 Candidate Recommendation

Categories: publications

The CSSWG recently published CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 3 as a Candidate Recommendation. W3C encourages implementations of this module, and welcomes feedback resulting from such implementation. Requests for new features will be assigned to Level 4.

CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 3 describes how to collate style rules and, by way of cascading an inheritance, assign values to all properties on all elements in the document. New features since the previous level (CSS2.1) include:

The spec also collapses all inputs to the cascade into a single list, making it easier to understand how different levels appended to the CSS2.1 definitions fit together.

Significant changes since the Last Call Working Draft are listed changes section.

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