Hi, folks-

I picked some topics related to text properties this week [1].

Please review the blog post [2], and let me know if you want to be a 
coordinator. I temporarily assigned myself as coordinator for all of the 
articles this week, because I didn't know who would be available, but 
I'm hoping for help... if you've contributed in the past, maybe you're 
ready to step up to be a coordinator?

Web Platform Wednesdays, Week 3: Texting!
May 22 2013
by Shepazu
You shouldn’t text while driving, but you should text while designing, 
and CSS3 puts the power in your hands to text with style! This week’s 
Web Platform Wednesday focuses on the properties from two related CSS 
Level 3 specifications: the CSS Text Module and the CSS Text Decoration 
Module.

Some of these properties will need attention by experts familiar with 
Asian languages, but some of them are purely visual… and hot! Help us 
complete these properties, and get the CSS Firestarter badge, available 
only to those who contribute to Web Platform Wednesdays.

The topics this week are a variety of text properties: text-wrapping, 
white-space, justification and alignment, spacing, edge, decoration, 
emphasis, and shadow. Does one of these interest you? Then take on one 
of these simple tasks for that article:

* Basic facts, such as overview table, syntax, and values
* Explanatory text, such as the introduction (summary), usage, and notes
* Examples, with explanations
* Links to tutorials and other materials (either inside WPD or on the 
wider web), to the relevant specifications, and cross-linking keywords 
to other reference articles
*Review, including flagging and unflagging

To get started, let one of the coordinators know on our 
public-webplatform@w3.org email list, or ask for direction on our 
Freenode #webplatform IRC channel, or even our @webplatform Twitter 
account. A coordinator will help you get you started.

Our first two weeks were very successful, tackling almost 50 properties! 
At this rate, with help from you, we will have comprehensive reference 
articles for all CSS properties in less than 3 months!

Regards-
-Doug
