Last Call: CSS Selectors

  The CSS Working Group has released a Last Call Working Draft of

  are welcome through 16 January. Visit the CSS home page.

  The XML Key Management Service (XKMS) Working Group has published

  artifacts, and usage scenarios for XKMS and PGP. Visit the XKMS
  home page.


Working Drafts: CSS Layout, Columns and Cascade

  The CSS Working Group has released a First Public Working Draft of
  the "CSS3 Advanced Layout Module" defining grid layout. The draft's
  features could be used to define visual order independent of document
  order, position and alignment of user interface "widgets," and page and
  window grids. Also published are Working Drafts of "Multi-Column
  Layout" and "Cascading and Inheritance." Visit the CSS home page.


Compound Document Framework Requirements Updated

  The Compound Document Formats Working Group has published the First
  Public Working Draft of "Compound Document Use Cases and Requirements
