Dear CSS Folks,

This is an update on the status of the Selectors Level 3 Proposed  
Recommendation:
     http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-css3-selectors-20091215/

The Director has approved its advancement to Recommendation but asked  
that it not be published as such while two of the documents it  
references normatively are Candidate Recommendations. This is  
consistent with the expectation set in the document status section:

    "The bibliography contains normative references to two W3C
specifications that are not Recommendations at the time of
publication, although they are believed to be stable. It is currently
the intention to keep this specification at Proposed Recommendation
level until those specifications are themselves Proposed
Recommendations or Recommendations."

The specification, already in widespread use, passed the Proposed  
Recommendation review without any objections or requests for changes.

Congratulations to the CSS Working Group for this accomplishment. The   
current expectation is that W3C will publish Selectors Level 3 as a  
Recommendation once the referenced documents have moved to  
Recommendation.

For more information about the Selectors specification, please  
contact  Bert Bos <bert@w3.org> or Chris Lilley <chris@w3.org>.

  _ Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications
