Sticky Positioning

Edward O’Connor showed a demo of position: sticky, which is similar to relative positioning in that the element takes up space, but causes the element to be “trapped” by the viewport while its containing block is visible. Everyone agrees it’s cool.

(This is an effect commonly done with JS; see for example the map in Yelp search results; or the section headers in Apple’s iPhone address book; or column headers in a spreadsheet. The proposal would trigger this effect with a single CSS declaration.)


Scientific Notation

Resolved: Add scientific notation to CSS numbers (not integers) using SVG syntax.
