Description Rick Eyre 2013-09-09 20:45:56 UTC
Looking at the "Applying CSS Properties to WebVTT Node Objects" sections I can't seem to find where 'right' and 'height' have been defined for WebVTT region objects.
Comment 1 Silvia Pfeiffer 2014-02-13 08:00:52 UTC
It says:
"Every WebVTT region object is initialized with the following CSS settings:
* the 'right' property must be set to <i>right</i>

As for height, it gives the following boundaries:
* the 'min-height' property must be set to '0px'
* the 'max-height' property must be set to <i>height</i>

'height' was deliberately not set such that the region can change height for rollup captions (i.e. for regions with a 'scroll' setting).

However, I think the spec is missing a 'height' setting for non-scroll regions. In the non-scroll case, the 'height' should be set to <i>height</i>.
