Input Method Editor API Draft Published

   04 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9776

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Input Method Editor API." This specification defines
   an “IME API” that provides Web applications with scripted
   access to an IME (input-method editor) associated with a
   hosting user agent. This IME API includes: an
   InputMethodContext interface, which provides methods to
   retrieve detailed data from an in-progress IME composition, a
   Composition dictionary, which represents read-only attributes
   about the current composition, such as the actual text and its
   style. This API is designed to be used in conjunction with DOM
   events. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

   network. Learn more about the Ubiquitous Web Applications

W3C Invites Implementations of CSS Conditional Rules Module Level 3,
and CSS Values and Units Module Level 3

   04 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9774

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group invites
   implementation of two Candidate Recommendations:

   http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/members
     * CSS Conditional Rules Module Level 3. This module contains
       the features of CSS for conditional processing of parts of
       style sheets, conditioned on capabilities of the processor
       or the document the style sheet is being applied to. It
       includes and extends the functionality of CSS level 2],
       which builds on CSS level 1. The main extensions compared
       to level 2 are allowing nesting of certain at-rules inside
       ‘@media’, and the addition of the ‘@supports’ rule for
       conditional processing.
     * CSS Values and Units Module Level 3. This CSS3 module
       describes the common values and units that CSS properties
       accept and the syntax used for describing them in CSS
       property definitions. This is an update that clarifies that
       the viewport size used by the 'vw' and 'vh' units includes
       the size of any scrollbars only when the scrollbars are
       “automatic” (CSS rule 'overflow: auto'), and that the
       corresponding definition of viewport size for paged media
       is *not* part of this module.

CSS Grid Layout Draft Published

   02 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9773

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Grid Layout." This CSS module defines a
   two-dimensional grid-based layout system, optimized for user
   interface design. In the grid layout model, the children of a
   grid container can be positioned into arbitrary slots in a
   flexible or fixed predefined layout grid. Learn more about the
   Style Activity.
