[css3-animations] New WD "CSS Animations Module Level 3"

The CSS WG published a draft of a new animations module:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-css3-animations-20090320

The module gives a CSS syntax for defining animations over CSS 
properties, including start and end values, duration and timing 
functions. The animations aren't part of the CSS rendering model, 
however, but meant to be used from a scripting language. In particular, 
the description of an animation doesn't define when the animation is 
run. (Cf. the transitions module, which defines animations as well, but 
between CSS pseudo-classes.)

Only animations over CSS properties can be described (and not, e.g., 
animated SVG graphics or text content).

Comments welcome. As usual, please, send comments to this list, 
<www-style@w3.org>, and start the subject line with [css3-animations].



For the CSS WG,
Bert
