[css-mobile] Candidate Recommendation of CSS Mobile Profile

The CSS working group published a Candidate Recommendation of the CSS 
mobile profile, a list of features from (mostly) CSS level 2 that even 
constrained mobile devices should be able to support:

     http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/CR-css-mobile-20080801/

The specification is the result of cooperation between W3C's CSS and CDF 
working groups and OMA (in particular the MCE working group). W3C's CSS 
Mobile Profile and OMA's Wireless CSS[1] are intended to be equivalent.

The Mobile Profile is a subset of CSS level 2 (CSS 2.1), except for the 
marquee properties, which are a level 3 feature. (See my other message 
about the publication of the marquee module.)

A Candidate Recommendation (CR) implies a call for implementations: we 
ask implementers to implement the profile and ask authors to start using 
it, and, especially, to give us feedback on any problems encountered in 
doing so.

If you send feedback, please, send it to this list, <www-style@w3.org>, 
and prefix the subject line with [css-mobile], as this message shows.

The specification will not progress beyond CR for at least six months, 
but if we find sufficient implementations, the next step after that will 
be that the working group asks that the specification be made a W3C 
Recommendation.

[1] Unfortunately, the link from the Mobile Profile to OMA's Wireless 
CSS 1.2 draft is currently broken. Sorry about that. It worked not very 
long ago, but I didn't test it today before the publication :-(



For the CSS WG,
Bert
