CSS Scroll Snap Module Level 1 Merges Change Proposal

By fantasai June 24, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Scroll Snap Module Level 1. This module contains features to control panning and scrolling behavior with “snap positions”, to which the UA is biased to land after a scroll operation.

This publication represents the completed merge of Tab and Fantasai’s Change Proposal that incorporates www-style feedback into Microsoft’s CSS Snap Points Module proposal championed by Matt Rakow. At this point all three editors will be working together to resolve the remaining open issues and address any further feedback on the module.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-scroll-snap]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Generated Content Initial Rewrite

By fantasai June 24, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a Working Draft CSS Generated and Replaced Content Level 3. This module specifies the generated content features (content property and related functionality) in CSS.

This is the first draft of a complete rewrite of this module, and is very rough. Large chunks (i.e. most) of the 2003 draft have been deleted, and major new functionality over CSS2.1 consists mainly of imports from the GCPM module. New features include:

plus a handy new syntax for alternate text: content: url(sparkle.png) / "New!";

We expect future work on this module to be pinning down the actual syntax and behavior of all the exciting new features imported from GCPM. For those who want to toy with implementations, most CSS->PDF renderers already support a significant subset. Significant changes since 2003 are listed in the Changes section.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-content]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Pseudo-Elements Level 4. This CSS module defines pseudo-elements, abstract elements that represent portions of the CSS render tree that can be selected and styled.

This somewhat-overdue publication includes the new ::marker pseudo-class, as well as ::inactive-selection. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-pseudo]) and your comment topic in the subject line.

CSS Flexbox CR Updated

By fantasai May 27, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Candidate Recommendation of CSS Flexible Box Layout Level 1. Flexbox is a new layout model for CSS. The contents of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, can be reordered, can be aligned and justified within their container, and can “flex” their sizes and positions to respond to the available space. We expect this model to be particularly useful for UI layouts.

This update addresses issues found since the 1 March 2016 publication. Exact diff-marked changes, and their justifications,
are available in the changes section. A Disposition of Comments resulting in the latest changes is
also available.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-flexbox]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
