Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a Candidate Recommendation and invites implementations of CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 4.

Grid Layout Spec Workshops

By fantasai January 10, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: general

Since the Flexbox workshops seemed to be helpful, fantasai is planning to organize a few Grid Layout spec workshops. There will be one in SF this month; add your availability to the Doodle if you’re interested. NYC and/or Philadelphia next month probably. And if neither of those work, you can get a group together to run one yourself—there are instructions for running a CSS spec workshop that anyone can organize.

2015 Snapshot and Prefix Policy Update

By fantasai December 31, 2015 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS WG has finally published a new CSS Snapshot: the CSS 2015 snapshot. This includes the new experimental implementations policy aka “prefix policy”, which has been formalized from the 2012 San Diego discussions. (Finalized wording for this was the hold-up to publishing this update; fantasai kept finding less-scary things to do.)

The CSS Snapshot collects together the set of CSS specs that are known to be a stable implementation target, but may not yet have a full set of passing test results. It also includes guidelines on the responsible implementation of CSS, as agreed on by the implementer representatives in the CSSWG.

We hope this document helps people understand the current state of the CSS specs and to find what they’re looking for among the many documents published by the CSSWG. As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org
with the spec code ([css-2015]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Writing Modes Level 3 Updated CR

By fantasai December 31, 2015 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Candidate Recommendation of CSS Writing Modes Level 3. CSS Writing Modes Level 3 defines CSS handling of various international writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin or Indic), right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and vertical (e.g. Asian scripts).

This update fixes a bunch of problems found in the previous Candidate Recommendation, resulting in a small number of major substantive changes. Important ones include:

All substantive changes since the previous Candidate Recommendation are listed in the Changes section.

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