First Public Working Draft of Text Level 4

By Alan Stearns September 22, 2015 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of CSS Text Module Level 4. This module defines additional properties for text manipulation.

The main work on CSS Text is still being done in Level 3. So until that work stabilizes, CSS Text Level 4 is a diff spec containing only new and/or deferred material. This includes:

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Inline Layout Module Level 3. This module covers inline vertical alignment and special typographic effects
for initial letters, such as drop caps.

Changes since the previous Working Draft include:

We’re actively looking for review on all aspects of the draft, and in particular need help with handling non-Western scripts.

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

CSS Grid Layout Level 1 Updated

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Grid Layout Level 1. This module defines a new type of layout manager, the grid, which makes it extremely easy to specify complex, responsive 2-dimensional layouts for a page or components.

The editors consider this draft to be the final design draft. There are a few open issues left, but these are mostly fixes and clarifications to the algorithms–the main one of which is ensuring the flexbox and grid flexing and fragmentation algorithms are in sync. There’s also one on visibility: collapse, which might be nice to solve, but might get pushed to Level 2. We will be updating the spec as we work through these, but don’t expect to make any significant changes to any existing features–unless someone sends a comment that requires such a change.

Your feedback is still welcome on the featureset and syntax. However because we’re hoping to prepare the final draft the week after TPAC, we would greatly prefer to receive said comments in time for discussion at the the CSSWG F2F–which begins on the 25th of October 2015.

We are looking especially for

Changes since the last Working Draft 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-grid-layout]) and your comment topic in the subject line. Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment, post something on your own blog and send us a link, or leave a comment here.

By Johannes Wilm September 15, 2015 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSSWG published First Public Working Draft of one module today:

CSS Page Floats
This document describes floats that move to the top or bottom of content passages. This feature has traditionally been used in print publications in which figures and photos are moved to the top or bottom of columns or pages, along with their captions. This draft describes how to achieve this effect for floats within pages, columns, regions and elements. Please send comments to www-style@w3.org with [css-page-floats] and your topic in the subject line.
