W3C’s New CSS Releases

Today the W3C announced several CSS3 advancements now online including four CSS3 Candidate Recommendations and two new CSS3 module Working Drafts. This includes the first set of CSS3 properties and values. Tantek ¸elik, one of W3C’s CSS Working Group members, writes about the latest W3C releases in today’s post CSS Reloaded.

When you get a chance, take a look at these CSS modules to see what’s going on. The CSS3 Generated and Replaced Content Module includes footnote elements, for example. The CSS3 Color module describes the CSS1 and CSS2 color-related properties and values while proposing new properties and values.

Feedback and comments are encouraged and invited and should be addressed to the www-style discussion list.
