The CSS Working Group is pleased to announce a new Editor’s Draft of CSS Expressive Generalizations and Gadgetry Level 1 (renaming suggestions welcome). This new module adds:

@charsetparsing rules from CSS3 to CSS2.1. dbaron to propose errata; zcorpan to update tests.
:has()with some previous-child and -parent combinators in fast profile. There were still a lot of concerns about the performance implications. dbaron will test to see what the effects would be so that a more informed decision can be made.
::markerto pseudo-elements spec, takes properties from color module and fonts module (color, font-*, and opacity)
::markerwith font properties and color to pseudo-elements spec (and still plan to do more later in the lists spec).
text-wrap: balanceproposal, there was some concern about the inheritance behavior. Instead, they will work on creating
white-spaceproperties were well received, though it was thought that discard would be a better word than consume.
region-fragmentreceived the most attention for bikeshedding. One issue with
continueis that it is a verb when almost all property names have been nouns or adjectives. Some people were inclined to return the name to
fragmentationbut most of the group felt that would have no context outside of the working group. It was suggested that there was likely vocabulary for this concept and that users of programs like inDesign or PhotoShop would likely have some suggestions.

trailing-spaceswill be in CSS Text Level 4
The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Fragmentation Module Level 3. This module describes the fragmentation model that partitions a flow into pages, columns, or regions and provides controls for breaking.
