If we want to change the CSS class selector character from ".", we should
set whatever political process is needed into motion immediately. There are
only a few implementations now. We should fix this now.

We should also consider approaching the HTML ERB to ask them to change the
HTML DTD to be compatible with the XML-HTML DTD as soon as possible (HTML
3.2? Cougar?). This change should not invalidate current documents.

From: Hakon Lie <howcome@w3.org>

The CSS1 specification has moved from being a W3C Working Draft to a
W3C Proposed Recommendation. From [1]:

Cascading Style Sheets, level 1
W3C Proposed Recommendation 12 Nov 1996
Status of this document
This document is in the course of review by the members of the
World-Wide Web Consortium. This is a stable document derived from
internal Working Drafts of the W3C HTML Editorial Review Board and the
public working draft WD-css1-960911. Details of this review have been
distributed to member's representatives. Comments by non-members
should be sent to www-style@w3.org.


The review period will end on 11 December 1996 24:00 GMT. Within 14 days
from that time, the document's disposition will be announced: it may become
a W3C Recommendation (possibly with minor changes), or it may revert to
Working Draft status, or it may be dropped as a W3C work item. This document
does not at this time imply any endorsement by the Consortium's staff or
member organizations.
