Hi,

Thanks for the offer!

It seems that in the current specification radial gradients are more powerful than axial ones and both syntaxes look very different.
Is this because you're trying to match an existing implementation?

Heya Rik!

The spec is still open for review; at the moment we have only a single experimental implementation, though I think the spec itself is mature and ready for wide implementation now.

I'd be happy to hear your feedback, though, and see if there's anything important missing that I should be addressing.  Note as well, though, that CSS gradients are purposely intended to be fairly simple; more complex gradients are reserved for SVG.
