Updated WD of Selectors Level 4

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Selectors Level 4. Selectors is a pattern-matching syntax for identifying sets of elements in a document, and is used e.g. for applying CSS declarations to elements in a document tree.

This publication brings the official draft up-to-date with all of the WG resolutions since 2013. Significant changes are summarized in the Changes section.

This specification is now in the Refining stage: we don’t expect any large changes prior to Candidate Recommendation, but will be continuing to address issues. Most features are well-scoped, with significant open issues described in the draft to solicit directed feedback. Other than addressing open issues, a significant focus of the next round of edits will be to update and improve cross-references between Selectors and other Web standards (in coordination with the editors of the DOM and HTML standards at WHATWG).

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.)
