Updated CSS Text Level 4: Refactored text-spacing and white-space Shorthands

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Text Level 4. This module covers covers white space processing; line breaking; text spacing, justification, and alignment; and text transformation.

This update significantly refactors the text-spacing property, completes the refactoring of white-space into shorthands, and renames its text-space-* longhands back to white-space-*. Changes since the last Working Draft are detailed in the Changes section.

We encourage everyone to review the syntax and behaviors of these two shorthands and their longhands, since several implementations are currently in progress:

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-text-4]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
