Hi all,

I was thinking that some inexperienced authors might search for things like -webkit-transform or -moz-transform instead of transform, because that’s what they saw in someone else’s code and assumed it was the property name. This is especially likely if they saw code from people who didn’t include an unprefixed version along with their prefixed declarations.

MDN has redirects for these. I’m not sure if it’s manual or automatic, but it looks manual.

I think it would be a good idea to set up redirects for these features as well. If we don’t intend to ever have separate documentation for prefixed features (are we going to document proprietary features?), it could be automatic, with mod_rewrite rules. I can help with these.

Thoughts?
