An updated WD of Generated Content for Paged Media is available:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-gcpm/

The new WD has fewer features than the previous version:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-css3-gcpm-20070504/

The motivation for shedding features is to have a specification that
is simpler to implement, more aliened with implementations, and more
mature.

There are, however, some new things in the new draft:

  - the 'env()' function returns data from the local environment of
    the user at the time of formatting.

  - inline footnotes; the value of 'display' in the @footnote context
    will determine if footnotes are block or inline

Two of the features that were removed from this draft will appear in
other places:

  - 'border-clip' is here:

        http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css4-background/

  - 'text-replace' is too useful to forget, but too powerful for this
    spec (sulk)

Cheers,

-h&kon
