About a fortnight ago, the CSS WG published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Display Level 3. This module describes how the CSS formatting box tree is generated from the document element tree and defines properties (like the display property) that control the types of boxes thus generated.

Significant changes since CSS2.1 include:

Our plan going forward is to resolve all the open issues (obviously), defer the longhands of display to another level[1], and hopefully transition to CR in the next six months.
