The CSS WG published the first version of a new module for CSS3, called 

    CSS3 Advanced Layout Module
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-css3-layout-20051215

It defines a way to lay out the descendants of an element in a grid-like 
template defined by that element. It's a bit like a cross between 
tables (for alignment) and absolute positioning (to be independent of 
the source order).

It's in the early stages, and it also contains other proposals (stacks 
of cards, varying elasticity of boxes), that are even less developed.

We're not even sure if this will remain a module or whether the contents 
will be integrated into other modules. Some of it may go to the Tables 
module or the Absolute Positioning module.

As always, feedback is very welcome. The preferred way is e-mail to this 
mailing list, with "[css-layout]" in the subject line, as on this 
message.
