Updated CSS Lists and Counters Level 3

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Lists Level 3. This module contains CSS features related to list markers and counters: styling them, positioning them, and manipulating their value.

This update refines the definition of which properties apply to ::marker and improves counter scoping and inheritance to be compatible HTML list numbering. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

Much of this module, particularly features necessary to support HTML list numbering via CSS counters, is now implemented in Gecko and Blink. The next phase will be mostly refining what’s already there in preparation for CR, with significant new work (including details of outside marker layout) being pushed to the next level.

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