   Testcase

   Proposal
     http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2007Nov/0219.html
     http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2007Nov/0221.html

   Resolved to announce intention to adopt the proposal, which is
   to make CSS-defined identifiers such as property names, keywords,
   etc. case-insensitive *within the ASCII range* and to make
   user-defined identifiers such as counter and page names fully
   *case-sensitive*. If there are no objections before January 8,
   we'll formally adopt this proposal. (I'll be sending out a separate
   announcement about this shortly.)

Media Queries syntax and parsing
--------------------------------

   Spent a lot of time discussing the issues Anne van Kesteren and
   Henri Sivonen have brought up recently. CSS parsing involves a
   lot of things that we're not sure should be part of media queries
   as used in other languages. Issues include

     - differing white space interpretations
     - CSS comments: are they allowed?
     - CSS backslash escapes: are they allowed?
     - Should media queries parsing match parentheses and quotes
       when parsing invalid queries?
     - Should media queries parsing append closing parentheses
       and quotes when parsing incomplete media queries?

   Anne will be putting together a proposal, so reply to his messages
   if you've got comments. :)

Other Topics
------------

   Also briefly discussed Anne's CSSOM View Module
      http://dev.w3.org/csswg/cssom-view/
   It's likely that a FPWD will be published soon.
