Ah, I thought we had abandoned the CSS-in-XML approach. As I had been
working, in a rather background kind of way, on a serialization which I
thought might be useful some time down the road. If we are to have a
serialization I think it needs to be robust as a stand-alone piece of
work and it needs to work for style sheets, style elements and style
attributes.

 

If we are going to switch tack back to CSS-in-XML I'd be happy to up the
priority of what I have been doing. It does not look a whole lot
different to what is suggested below, but as always, the devil is in the
detail.

      <ruleset>

            <selector value="table"/>

            <declaration property="margin" important="true">

                  <value value="2" unit="px"/>

                  <value value="2" unit="px"/>

                  <value value="2" unit="px"/>

                  <value value="2" unit="px"/>

            </declaration>          

            <declaration property="background-color">

                  <value value="#ffccff"/>

            </declaration>          

      </ruleset>

      <ruleset>

            <selector value="a" pseudo="visited"/>

            <declaration property="color">

                  <value value="rgb(120,120,120)"/>

            </declaration>

      </ruleset>

Subject: ACTION 515 -New CSS approach

 

 

This is a summary of what we  have already committed regarding CSS
stuff:

 

*So far, what was previously committed in CVS was explained in

 a mail some days ago but the main points were:

 

            -Java classes for represent CSS resources.

            -Representation in moki of CSS validation info.

            -Representation in moki of CSS test specific info.

 

*As Sean said, the last point was not very correct (having an
intermediate

doc with mobileOK test specific info) so we tried to proceed with using
java

functions from XSLT (similar approach to Caching test). 

But we desisted from this approach because Java functions would not
return primitives

types but blocks of XML result code, which it is not a very good
solution.

In addition tests classes would need visibility of PreprocessorResults
to extract CSS info

(what is not contained in moki) 

 

*So this week, we (basically Miguel) go on with another different
approach to fulfil

this problem. This is a pseudo serialization of CSS in XML in the
following format:

 

            <styles>

            <style>

               <selector>a:link</selector>

               <property name="color">rgb(0, 0, 204)</property>

            </style>

            <style>

               <selector>a:visited</selector>

               <property name="color">rgb(0, 0, 204)</property>

            </style>

 

      </styles>

 

And we have modified MeasuresTest and StylesheetsSupportTest to deal
with

this approach and also in order to use the new result template.

 

Any feedback on this will be welcome. :-)
