CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3, CSS Masking Drafts Published

   15 November 2012 | Archive


   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3." CSS
   Writing Modes Level 3 defines CSS support for various
   international writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin
   or Indic), right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional
   (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and vertical (e.g. Asian


   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group and the SVG
   Working Group have published the First Public Working Draft of
   "CSS Masking." CSS Masking provides two means for partially or
   fully hiding portions of visual elements: masking and clipping.
   Masking describes how to use another graphical element or image
   as a luminance or alpha mask. Typically, rendering an element
   via CSS or SVG can conceptually described as if the element,
   including its children, are drawn into a buffer and then that
   buffer is composited into the element's parent. Luminance and
   alpha masks influence the transparency of this buffer before
   the compositing stage. Clipping describes the visible region of
   visual elements. The region can be described by using certain
   SVG graphics elements or basic shapes. Anything outside of this
   region is not rendered.

       This workshop serves as a forum for the W3C membership and

       area of tracking protection and Web privacy. What have we
       learned from Do Not Track standardization and real-world
       implementations? Furthermore, undoubtedly support for
       privacy on the Web platform cannot end with Do Not Track:
       what should we look at next and beyond DNT?

       Today’s eBook market is dynamic, fast-changing and strong.
       eBooks compete with printed versions, and there is a wide
       choice of hardware and software available for eBook
       readers. Nevertheless, publishers face major business and
       technical challenges in this market, some of which could be
       reduced or removed by standardization.
