Last Call for Comments on CSS Text Level 3

By fantasai December 7, 2018 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Text Level 3 and is issuing a Last Call for Comments prior to requesting a transition to Candidate Recommendation. CSS Text contains various typesetting properties not related to font selection, such as alignment, line breaking, white space collapsing, text justification, and other forms of text-level spacing adjustments.

This update completes the handling of all comments received during the 2013 Last Call period and up through today. A Disposition of Comments documents the comments and their resolutions. The CSSWG requests review of the draft and the changes. If no further comments are received, we expect to transition the draft to Candidate Recommendation in two weeks, thus the deadline for comments or requests for extended time to review is Wednesday 19 December 9:00am Pacific Standard Time.

Note that requests for new features are being deferred to Level 4. This is just a request for review of the existing features in Level 3. (Comments on Level 4 are of course also welcome; please file appropriately.)

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-text-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

Updated Working Draft of Selectors Level 4

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of Selectors Level 4. Selectors are patterns that match against elements in a tree and are used as a core part of CSS and in DOM methods such as .querySelector(). This update adds, drops, and renames a number of selectors:

In addition, the specificity rules for :is() and :nth-child() were altered to use the most specific selector argument rather than the most specific selector that happened to match. See specificity rules in the spec and
and discussion leading up to this change in Issue 1027.

Changes since the February 2018 WD are all listed in the Changes section.

One major issue that’s open is redefining the way invalid selectors are handled within :is() and similar pseudo-classes to ignore unknown selectors rather than invalidating the entire style rule. See Issue 3264. Another series of open issues concerns the :visited pseudo-class and how to balance security concerns with usability requirements. Other remaining work is largely clarifications and better integration with the DOM and HTML specifications.

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 ([selectors-4]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Flexbox Level 1 Updated

By fantasai November 20, 2018 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Flexible Box Layout Level 1, which defines the flex layout model. 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 resolves the undefined behavior of block-axis percentage margins and padding and addresses issues found since the 19 October 2017 publication. Exact diff-marked changes, and their justifications, are available in the changes section and a disposition of comments is also available. There remains one significant issue open, pending a Web-compat investigation.

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-flexbox-1]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
