CSS3 Fonts
----------

   Filed ISSUE-61 against CSS3 Fonts
     http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/61
   John Daggett presented an overview of CSS3 Fonts including a discussion of
     - interpretation of mixed nested 'bolder' and 'lighter' keywords
     - history of font formats used on the Web
     - font-size-adjust
     - extending font-variant
     - security issues with downloadable fonts

GCPM
----

   Discussed structure of GCPM and relationship to other drafts
   Discussed 'border-length' feature and moving it to Backgrounds and Borders
   Discussed 'text-replacement'. Several members strongly feel it does not
     belong in CSS but rather as part of a transformation language that uses
     CSS syntax.
   Discussed bookmark feature. Several members skeptical that this belongs in
     CSS as it's conveying semantic information.
   Discussed extensions to 'float'.

Vertical Text
-------------

   RESOLVED: Split out vertical text feature into its own draft. Microsoft
             plans to work on it as they have an implementation.
   Discussed terminology for describing vertical text layout model.
   RESOLVED: Rename 'block-progression' to 'block-flow'.
   RESOLVED: Use terms 'logical width' and 'logical height' to refer to dimensions
             in the inline dimension and block flow dimension respectively.
   RESOLVED: Use terms "vertical text mode" and "horizontal text mode" to
             differentiate horizontal and vertical block flows.

Backgrounds and Borders
-----------------------

   RESOLVED: No keywords in calc() for background-position
   RESOLVED: Accept 4-value syntax for background-position in editor's draft:
             4 values that require two keywords, allow zero values to be skipped.
   RESOLVED: Proposal to add 'transparent' keyword to 'border-image' rejected.
               http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/28
   RESOLVED: No change to names of 'background-clip' and 'background-origin'
   RESOLVED: Publish new Working Draft of CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders, take this
             set of functionality to CR.

CSS Variables
-------------

   Daniel presented some changes to the CSS Variables proposal and Hyatt's
     experimental implementation.
   Several people felt that parse-time macros would be preferable, and would
     indeed be required for multi-declaration substitution.

Miscellaneous
-------------

   Mentioned styling of video controls, skipped topic for lack of proposal or
     implementor interest.
   Very long discussion of <br> and how it behaves in the CSS formatting model.
   Discussed browseable test harness
     http://csswg.inkedblade.net/test/harness
   Discussed (briefly) Template Layout module
   Reviewed charter with Philippe Le Hégaret
