CSS Writing Modes Candidate Recommendation

By fantasai March 21, 2014 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published Candidate Recommendation of CSS Writing Modes Level 3 and invites implementations. 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).

Changes since the last Working Draft include renaming text-combine-horizontal to text-combine-upright and a handful of clarifications.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-writing-modes-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.) We would especially appreciate reviews of the layout rules, since they’re complex and likely to still have errors…

CSS Shapes Level 1 Candidate Recommendation

By Alan Stearns March 20, 2014 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a Candidate Recommendation of CSS Shapes Module Level 1. The specification describes geometric shapes for use in CSS, and allows these shapes to be applied to floats. When a shape is applied to a float, inline content wraps around that shape instead of the float’s margin box.

The only changes from the last Last Call draft were in code examples.

All changes to the draft over the last few publications 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-shapes]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Syntax Level 3 Candidate Recommendation

By Simon Sapin March 1, 2014 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS WG has published a Candidate Recommendation of the CSS Syntax Module Level 3. This module describes, in general terms, the basic structure and syntax of CSS stylesheets. It defines, in detail, the syntax and parsing of CSS – how to turn a stream of bytes into a meaningful stylesheet.

This is a complete rewrite of the obsolete 2003 draft. It describes CSS tokenization and parsing in imperative recursive descent style, and exhaustively covers error handling. Additionally, the An+B syntax used in :nth-child() and related Selectors is now described in terms of the same tokenizer as the rest of CSS.

Changes since the Last Call 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-syntax]<<) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
