The CSS WG published an updated draft of the CSS Regions module:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-css3-regions-20111129/

The module defines ways to (1) assign style to "regions" of the canvas, 
(2) create complex shaped regions out of multiple regions, and (3) 
position content into them. Various things might be used as regions, 
e.g., columns in a multi-column element or slots in a template/grid.

Note that several other (draft) modules define features related to high-
level layouts (Multi-column Layout, Grid Layout, Template Layout, 
Flexible Box Layout, etc.). Only little work has so far been done to 
integrate them.

The changes since the previous are draft are noted in the document: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-css3-regions-20111129/#changes

As usual, please send comments to this mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, 
and prefix the subject line with

    [css3-regions]

to help the editors find them more easily.


Also note that this draft uses an experimental style sheet (so don't 
worry that it doesn't look like a W3C specification). This is meant to 
solicit comments on what makes a draft usable. If you have any comments, 
please send them to <site-comments@w3.org> (only on the style, not on 
the CSS features the draft defines).



For the CSS WG,
Bert
