Hi,

re: MacOS
The current plan is to finish the Raphsody port before the MacOS one but we'll concentrate on
the Win32 version for a while so will take a while before you'll see a MacOS version...
The code is 95% portable (no changes need to be made) but writing those 5% of platform specific code still takes some time.

re: Document
Putting together a document describing our extensions is top priority, I'll let you know asap
when its available.

Re: how much...
We implemented almost all of CSS1 (white-space is one of the props we do not implement, but we do implement first-letter and first-line...). We'll finish the positioning stuff within a few weeks - a new Win32 version will be released soon after. We've implemented our own printing extensions which will be described in detail in the above mentioned document.

Best,
Bjorn

Interesting!

I would have loved to beta test this product - but I work on a
Macintosh. Please tell me when your first Mac OS version is
availabe. You referred to "Vodka" as a "cross platform" tech-
nology, so I guess I can count on it!

Wouldn't you like to put together a document describing your
proposed extensions to CSS, so that all of us not using Windows
can discuss them? I would also like to know how much of CSS
you have implemented. CSS1? CSS positioning? Printing exten-
sions?

Best regards,
Carl Johan Berglund
