CSS and MathML Joint Meeting
----------------------------

   The MathML WG is working on ways to display MathML with CSS. Our discussions
   resulted in the MathML WG posting the following:
     http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2007Nov/0081.html

Japanese Layout Task Force Report
---------------------------------

   Nothing new to report.

CSS Validator
-------------

   The CSS Validator team requested a better definition of what a valid CSS
   document is.

Tables
------

   Reviewed new revision of the table width calculation algorithm document.
   This should make its way to dev.w3.org as HTML sometime soon.

Marquee
-------

   RESOLVED: Rename 'marquee-loop' to 'marquee-play-count'.
   RATIONALE: Avoid confusion over whether "marquee-loop: 1" means play once
             or play twice.

   NOTED:    Need clarifications for behavior of 'marquee-style' keywords.
   NOTED:    Computed value section of 'marquee-direction' doesn't match values.
   NOTED:    Note about 'alternate' under 'marquee-direction' definition is
             wrong and should be fixed by saying "opposite of the direction
             given by marquee-drection" or somesuch.

   RESOLVED: Remove 'overflow-style-x' and 'overflow-style-y' in favor of
             "overflow-style: auto | marquee-line | marquee-block" where
             marquee-line scrolls parallel to the line boxes and marquee-block
             scrolls perpendicular to them.
   RATIONALE: Combining this into one property avoids senseless combinations
             like marquee in both directions, and also works the same way for
             both vertical and horizontal text.

Box Module and Width Keywords
-----------------------------

   RESOLVED: Keep "display: compact" in CSS Box Module Level 3.

   RESOLVED: Add keywords to 'width' and 'height' from Section 3 of
               http://dbaron.org/css/intrinsic/
             but rename 'fill' to 'available', 'min-intrinsic' to 'min-content',
             'intrinsic' to 'max-content', and 'shrink-wrap' to 'fit-content'.

CSS2.1 Issues
-------------

   RESOLVED: Proposal accepted for issue 16
               http://csswg.inkedblade.net/spec/css2.1#issue-16

   Test cases needed for some other issues.

CSS3 Multi-Col
--------------

   Agreed to publish a Last Call with an extended public comment period after
   vertical text issues are addressed.

Media Queries
-------------

   RESOLVED: Define that @page rules are allowed inside @media rules in the
             CSS3 Paged Media spec.
   RESOLVED: "all and" can be dropped form a media query, e.g. @media (color) {} is ok.
   RESOLVED: Unknown/unsuppported media queries are ignored, but the other
             comma-separated parts can still be used.
   RESOLUTION: Dropping unknown parts of a media query such that all parts
               are dropped means you end up with none, not all.

   Media Queries will go back to LC.

Rotation and Transformation
---------------------------

   Discussed use cases, SVG-like 'transform' syntax, and centers of rotation.

   NOTED: We need keywords for pegging the center of rotation at e.g. the
          baseline of an inline element, or at the center of any other element.

   NOTED: For the above reason and for usability, need a way to set the anchor
          point explicitly.

   NOTED: A 'diagonal' could introduce circularity if it affects layout.

   NOTED: Separate properties to trigger transform behaviors could introduce
          cascade problems.

   NOTED: 'transform' should trigger a new block formatting context. A 'none'
          value is needed as the default.

   NOTED: Importing SVG syntax directly doesn't work because it's incompatible
          with CSS tokenization and some other conventions. Some specific
          problems include: CSS can't accept spaces before the opening ( of
          functional notation, functions need to take lengths not numbers,
          and functional notation should require commas.
