A new version of the Cascading Style Sheets specification [1] is
available. There are only minor changes to CSS1, but the documentation
has been strengthened and clarified.

Changes from the Dec 22 version include:

 - 1.5 is proposed as a font scale factor instead of 1.4
 - some colors names have been removed (magenta, cyan, pink) to make
   room for CNS
 - 'light-red' is changed to 'light ref' for the same reason
 - the 4th cascading rule has been eliminated
 - 'bg-position' has some new values: top|middle|bottom|left|center|right
 - 'list-item' value added to 'display' property
 - CSS1 conformance rules slightly reworded
 - the usage of the 'background' property clarified
 - 'text-indent' is now an inherited property
 - negative 'margin', 'letter-spacing' and 'word-spacing' values are
   being questioned
 - only one 'font-faily' value is allowed on the 'font' property
 - a section on how to format the canvas has been added
 - the table formatting model has been extended
 - 'BODY' is the recommended default selector
 - a section on the encoding of fonts have been added
 - a section on the "applicability and extensibility of CSS1" has been
   added

Also, courtesy of Bert Bos, a description on how to convert from CSS
to DSSSL has been started [2].
