CR of CSS Containment Level 1

Categories: publications

The CSS WG has published a Candidate Recommendation and invites implementations of the CSS Containment Module Level 1.

This CSS module describes the contain property, which indicates that the element’s subtree is independent of the rest of the page. This enables heavy optimizations by user agents when used well.

This is the first CR of this drafts. Implementations are encouraged, and feedback based on them much welcome. In particular, comments about interaction with other specifications would be very welcome, and you find desirable optimization opportunities that this technology fails to facilitate, the CSSWG would like to hear from you.

Significant changes are listed in the change section of the specification, and a disposition of comments is available.

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