Subject: [css3-ui][issue] resize doesn't describe actual UA's behavior

Hi all,

I just wanted to post a small bug report for the css3-ui spec [1]:

The specced 'resize' proprety's behavior is *completely* different from the 
behavior implemented in browsers supporting the property (FireFox/Chrome).

The spec proposes to create "scaling factors" for the element when the user 
resizes it that stick even if the size of the element changes (:hover...) 
(but that's a problem according to me because there's no way for a script to 
understand that scaling factor).

To the contrary, browsers implement the resize property by allowing the user 
to set the inline-style's width/height properties on the resizable element. 
In all UAs that support 'resize', an "!important" rule will make the resize 
ineffective.

I believe we should update the spec to match the UAs implementation 
(something I propose would however be to set min-width instead of width to 
allow hover effects to work expectedly).


Best regards,
François
