Hi,

Okay, maybe I took an wrong example.

You can take writing-mode property. You can also take margin-before property. They change the layout drastically on new browsers, right?

This is a repeat, but what I think is important for compatibility are:

* Do not break existing documents at all.
* Renders reasonably, at least readable, in down level browsers.

I think this proposal achieves the same level of these goals as other properties that are proposed.

Can you please explain how you think margins-against could differ from writing-mode in regards to the compatibility? I'd love to fix or change my proposal if there's something I missed.


Regards,
Koji Ishii

I think that such a difference between CSS 2.1 and CSS 3.0 is too drastic and unacceptable.
