About the tutorial

CSS is still growing. Every once in a while the CSS working group at W3C publishes a “Snapshot” that describes what is stable so far.

The current one is CSS Snapshot 2010 and contains

This presentation assumes the audience already knows level 2 (and also the style attribute, which is from HTML 4), and treats a selection of features from level 3. It starts with the stable modules (Media Queries, Selectors and Color) and continues with the others more or less in the order from most to least stable.

What is stable is a matter of judgment, of course. It may be that more problems are found with the “stable” modules than expected at this time.

What is clear, however, is that the included demonstrations for modules later in the list work on fewer implementations. Indeed, for all the modules after the break only experimental implementations exist at this time.
