Hello,

W3C Advisory Committee Representatives received a Proposal to republish 
the following W3C Recommendation as a Superseded Recommendation:

    Cascading Style Sheets, level 1
    W3C Recommendation 17 Dec 1996, revised 11 Apr 2008
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-CSS1-20080411

The following text is proposed to be added to the Status of This Document:

    This specification has been superseded by CSS Level 2.  For purposes
    of the W3C Patent Policy this Superseded Recommendation has the same
    status as an active Recommendation; it retains licensing commitments
    and remains available as a reference for old implementations.
    CSS 2 is recommended for new adoption.

The reason for this proposal is that CSS 2.1 was published as a 
Recommendation on 07 June 2011, while CSS 2.2 continues to update CSS 
2.1 with errata. CSS Level 2 is a true superset of CSS Level 1 but also 
contains many corrections and clarifications relevant to CSS 
implementations. The W3C needs to communicate this as clearly as 
possible to the Web community.

As part of ensuring that the community is aware of this proposal, W3C 
invites public comments on the public-review-announce@w3.org mailing 
list [1] through 23:59, Boston time on 2018-06-27.

If you work for a W3C Member 
<https://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List>, please coordinate your 
comments with your Advisory Committee Representative. For example, you 
may wish to make public comments and have your Advisory Committee 
Representative refer to it from his or her formal review comments.

This Call for review follows section 6.9 "Declaring a W3C Recommendation 
Rescinded, Obsolete or Superseded" of the W3C Process Document:
    https://www.w3.org/2018/Process-20180201/#rec-rescind

and section 6.2.3.1 "Wide Review" of the W3C Process Document:
    https://www.w3.org/2018/Process-20180201/#wide-review

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director, and
Philippe Le Hégaret, Project Management Lead;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
