ISSUE-204: Drop comma in attr() syntax to match CSS value syntax principles

Drop comma in attr() syntax to match CSS value syntax principles

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS3 Values and Units
Raised by:
Elika Etemad
Opened on:
2011-12-12
Description:
The principle of comma usage in CSS value syntax is that commas separate items in a list of parallel constructs. If we're going with CSS argument syntax per radial-gradient(), the comma between the attribute name and the type keyword in attr() thus should be dropped.

Related notes:

The functional notation uses commas to separate arguments, as per normal functional notation. The comma has been used for years in quite complex styling, as discussed here:

How would these values be reformulated without commas?
