I just wanted to mention the following document:

  CSS3 module: text
  http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/

This Working Draft is in Last Call until 27 November.

One of my theories is that the text content to which timing will be applied
in most of the uses of the Timed Text specification is something which is
roughly "in the range between the Character Model and HTML Tiny."  What I
mean is that a caption-playing widget is an application where people want
a variety of effects, don't want to have to code a lot to get them, but also
don't want to burden the text stream down too much to get the desired effect
either.

I anticipate that we will spend a non-trivial amount of time wrestling with
modularity and how much presentation support to include in the specification
and what our options are for mix and match between timing and bells and 
whistles.

In any case, the effects described in the 'text' module are probably a lot
of them things that would be candidates for application in captions and other
applications of timed text.

So I would invite the subscribers of this list to take note of the Last Call
review for this module and review it if you can.

Thank you,

Al
