    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


    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<> <<>> 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!
