Hi group.

The transition shorthand
property<http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-transitions/#the-transition-shorthand-property->
is
neither intuitive or very short when it comes to defining several CSS
properties.
E.G. transition: background-color 1s ease, color 1s ease;
A far more intuitive approach would be to define several properties in
the [<‘transition-property’> part.
I.E. transition: background-color, color 1s ease;
As the Draft elaborate on transition-property; Value: none | all | [
<IDENT> ] [ ‘,’ <IDENT> ]* it is fair to assume that this is also true when
it comes to the shorthand method. It is noted (in the Draft) that the first
value that can be parsed as a time is assigned to the transition-duration.
Hence allowing multiple properties before transition-duration should not
break existing implementations.
**

DISCLAIMER: I'm not a spec implementer but a front end developer (web
author). Any difficulties in parsing the above proposal haven't been
considered thoroughly. This discussion is only tested on the FF9 and WebKit
535.7 implementations.

Cheers, Jon.
