[css3-namespace] published as CR

Message-Id: <200805232002.44480.bert@w3.org>

The CSS WG published a Candidate Recommendation for the CSS Namespaces 
Module. A Candidate Recommendation is a stable specification in W3C's 
opinion, but one that still needs to see some use in real life before 
becoming a W3C Recommendation.


It defines the '@namespace' rule, which is the missing piece to make 
Selectors work in CSS, or at least those selectors that select elements 
by their XML Namespace rather then by their names or attributes.

So please, start implementing!

In this case, we actually believe many implementers have already 
implemented it, but we need to set up the test suite and test reports 
before we can be sure. We hope to have some test results as early as 

There were only few comments on the last working draft and all were 
accepted by the WG: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-namespace/issues-2

More feedback is still welcome, on this mailing list, as usual: 
<www-style@w3.org>. Please, prefix the subject of all relevant messages 
with [css3-namespace] as I did on this message.

Contributions to the test suite, test reports, etc. are also welcome. 
The preferred place for that is another mailing list: 

The test suite will be based on (or maybe even the same as) the 
Selectors test suite: http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/#css3-selectors
