We are updating the style sheets for W3C technical reports. This year's styling project is minor improvements and cleanup, not major changes, so the look and feel will remain substantially the same. Also, please note that since the publication system work is ongoing, no markup will be harmed in the development of the 2016 style sheet. Given that, however, we hope to improve the quality and consistency of styles used across W3C.

This survey must be completed by each working group, on behalf of the members of that working group (i.e not only on behalf of the chairs).

  • Paste in URLs to a representative sample (1-3 links) of your specs. If styling differs substantially between /TR and your editor's drafts, please link to both versions.
  • What spec pre-processor(s) does your WG use?
  • Paste in URLs to any WG-specific style sheets you use.
  • What do you like about your current styles?
  • What do you dislike about your current styles?
  • Paste in URLs to any parts of your spec that are stylistically complex or tricky, and we should therefore be careful not to screw up.
  • The new styles will include rules for rendering data tables. These will be opt-in by class name, and rely heavily on good markup (use of THEAD, TBODY, COLGROUP, scope attributes, etc.). See Simple Example Less Simple Example Extra-Complex Example. Paste in URLs to a sampling of any data tables you are using so that we can try to accommodate those in the styling, if practical.
  • The CSSWG has made a number of minor improvements to the existing spec styles, which we might just adopt wholesale. Please comment on what you like/dislike about these styles, as demonstrated in the CSS3 Text specification.
  • Is there anything else we should consider?

Individual members of the WG, W3C Staff, and others are also welcome to send feedback to spec-prod@w3.org. Please be sure to use "[restyle]" in the subject line.
