Last Call for Comments on CSS Sizing Level 3

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Intrinsic and Extrinsic Sizing Level 3. This module extends the CSS sizing properties with keywords that represent content-based “intrinsic” sizes and context-based “extrinsic” sizes, allowing CSS to more easily describe boxes that fit their content or fit into a particular layout context.

Significant changes since last year are listed in the changes section and include:

Open issues include:

We expect to transition to CR soon, so this draft effectively marks the beginning of a last call for comments period; we will be accepting comments at least through the end of March, and depending on the state of the draft, aim to transition to CR sometime in April. (We will of course process comments during CR as well, but would prefer to get them sooner rather than later.)

(Note that the min-content and max-content keywords have already been officially cleared for shipping by the CSSWG in 2015 since their syntax was stable and their behavior was tied to behavior exposed in existing CSS2.1 features.)

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