>
> The CSS WG just published a new WD for Selectors[1] accompanied by a
> last call for reviews. In principle, the deadline is four weeks from
> now: April 7. If your WG wants to send comments but need longer,
> please, let us know.

> About the specification:
>
> Selectors debuted in CSS, but are now also used in other technologies.
> They select elements and a few other things in tree-structured
> documents or in an (interactive) rendering of such a document. We call
> this specification "Selectors level 3" to distinguish it from the
> subset used by CSS level 2 and the even smaller subset of CSS level 1.
>
> The specification is quite old. It was published as a CR in 2001, then
> republished as a WD in 2005 in order to remove one feature that wasn't
> implemented (the "content" selector) and now again, with one more
> feature removed: The "selection" selector, although implemented,  
> showed
> problems that we decided to not deal with right now.
>
> The next step should be PR, because we have a test suite and it  
> appears
> to be implemented. (We haven't published the test reports, because
> since they were last written, we fixed some bugs in both the tests and
> the spec. We'll make new ones before PR, of course.)
