CSS Lists and Counters Module Level 3 Draft, CSS Namespace Module Level 3 republished

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a Working Draft of CSS Lists and Counters Module Level 3. This draft contains the features of CSS level 3 relating to list styling. It includes and extends the functionality of CSS level 2 [CSS21]. The main extensions compared to level 2 are a pseudo-element representing the list marker, and a method for authors to define their own list-styles.

The group also updated in place the 29 September 2011 Recommendation of CSS Namespaces Module Level 3. The changes include the addition of three grammar rules which aren’t used in the spec itself, to avoid having to add them to new specs that do need them; addition of an extra explanation to an example (“because…”); change to the term “rule sets” to “style rules.” Both are correct, but the latter is easier to understand.
