Hi Paul and Eliot,

I think its important that they are not only left in, but that they are expanded to include webkit and moz prefixes...

for interoperability and backwards compatibility website developers are required to use vendor specific prefixes in their css.


eg.

..pop.in{     animation-delay: 0s;     animation-duration: 1s;     animation-name: popin;     -webkit-animation: popin 1s 0s alternate both;     -o-animation-delay: 0s;     -o-animation-duration: 1s;     -o-animation-name: popin;     -webkit-transform: scale(1);     tansform: scale(1);     -moz-transform: scale(1);     -o-transform: scale(1);
}commonly in support forums...developers will declare... ‘it works in browser X but not in browser y’the stock answer may be ‘you haven’t included the vendor prefixed rules for your version of the browser’ or ‘you haven’t included the standard rule’ for compliant browsers.Perhaps as with depreciated html elements, the documentation should state the Standard css property that replaces the vendor prefixed property rule.I have a full listing of vendor prefixed css rules if you wish... or you can query a browser support by typingdocument.body.stylein the console tab of the browser’s DOM inspector (Page inspector, IE f12 or Dragonfly or FireBug).Regards.

Remove.

 

These were likely left over from the original import of the content on MSDN, where they are appropriate. They don’t really apply to Webplatform docs.

 

Thanks,

I was looking through the site and found a few css properties that are vendor-prefixed, like http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/properties/-ms-radial-gradient.

 

Are we adding are this vendor prefixed pages or removing them? I would go for the latter. Especially in this case because, as far as I know, there was never a stable IE version that had this property.

 

Paul.
