This document is a NOTE issued by the Cascading Style Sheets and Formatting Properties Working Group (CSS & FP WG). It is provided for information only, and does not represent a W3C-endorsed specification. Features described here may or may not become part of a W3C Recommendation or other specification, and they may change considerably in the process. The features should therefore not be implemented, except as experiments, clearly labeled as experimental. Such experiments are welcomed, and may provide valuable information about the development (or not) of these features, but the fact that a feature has been implemented (or implemented in a certain way), will by itself not be an argument to adopt the feature in CSS (or adopt it in this particular form).
A list of current W3C Recommendations and other technical documents can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR/.
This Note attempts to document all the features that have been suggested for CSS, and that are not part of CSS2. The fact that a feature has been listed here does not mean it will be in some future version of CSS; some of the suggestions do not fit in CSS or are better handled elsewhere (e.g., in HTML, SMIL, or RDF). The purpose of the list is to make sure suggestions are neither forgotten nor suggested over and over again.
Many suggestions are just listed without further comment. If the CSS working group has discussed a feature, some remarks may be added.
Comments on this draft are welcome and should be sent to the email@example.com mailing list (recommended) or the CSS & FP WG (only for W3C members), or to the editors if neither of the above is suitable.
Please, give feedback before the 5th of February 1999.
Ian Hickson <firstname.lastname@example.org> for suggesting this document, and maintaining one independently.
Please, give your evaluation of each of the listed items, by filling in the form. You don't have to fill in the whole form at once. You can submit multiple times, and new evaluations will be added to any old ones, or override them, if you rate the same item twice. However, that is the only use we make of the sender's e-mail address. When we publish the results, the e-mail addresses will not be published.
Please indicate your support for the feature, not for the suggested solutions. For example, if you want columns very much, but don't like the particular properties proposed, choose option 5: "strongly in favor." (And then send what you think of the solution to www-style.)
Each item can be rated on a scale from 1 to 5:
Mildly in favor
Strongly in favor
If you already sent in a form, then the "I skipped this question" button means that whatever you said last time, will remain in the database unchanged.
The form will be active until 5 February 1999.
