Media Queries

   We discussed several media queries issues, including:

     - syntax, where there seemed to be agreement to use CSS syntax minus escapes
         - It was pointed out that media queries even in HTML are not always
           used in conjunction with CSS or by a UA with a CSS parser
         - It was pointed out that CSS has robust forward-compatible parsing
           rules that should be kept (e.g. matching brackets and quoted strings)
         - It was pointed out that the same rules will need to apply to Selectors
         - No one seemed to care whether comments were kept or not

     - calc(), where there was agreement that it shouldn't be in media queries
       and several ideas were floated on how to do this:
         * explicitly list which length units are allowed (awkward, hard to update)
         * exclude media queries in the calc() definition in css3-values
         * say in Media Queries that only simple lengths are allowed, not expressions

     - noted that some other issues (but not all) are recorded in


   CSS2.1 Issue 28 resolved: can't mix commas and spaces in rect(), proposed wording
     accepted. http://csswg.inkedblade.net/spec/css2.1#issue-28

Other Notes

   - Tables added as potential topic for March F2F
   - WaSP will be collecting feedback from web designers about what they want
     to see in CSS3. See
