Hi APA Working Group,

CSS WG requests Accessibility review of CSS Conditional Rules Module Level 3
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-conditional-3/

This specification is used to add conditional tests for supported 
features (@supports) or for particular media (@media) to a stylesheet. 
So for example the same document can have different styling on screen 
and in print, or the stylesheet author can check that some new CSS 
property is actually supported before using it. This enhances the 
robustness of styling, especially when older browsers are still in use.

Because this is purely a CSS syntactic feature, we feel that the none of 
the "if" clauses
in the a11y FAST self-review questionnaire seem pertinent.
    https://w3c.github.io/apa/fast/checklist.html

Please raise any accessibility features by opening an issue in the csswg 
GitHub repo:
   https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues

The specification has been at CR since 2013
   https://www.w3.org/TR/css3-conditional/
   https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/chairs/2013JanMar/0130.html
but due to the long interval since that time, CSSWG is restarting wide 
review before publishing a Candidate Recommendation Snapshot.

There is a list of changes since the 2013 CR
   https://drafts.csswg.org/css-conditional-3/#changes

The specification is widely implemented
https://test.csswg.org/harness/results/css-conditional-3_dev/grouped/
and we expect to meet the CR exit requirements in the next few months.

Thanks!
