Hi Richard,

The two documents are still work in progress and had not been validated yet but thanks for running them through the validator.

I fixed the error with the disabled attribute on the transform spec. which now validates.

The CSS shaders draft is being folded into the Filter Effects spec, so no more work is actually happening on that draft. I will add the missing 'alt' attributes and fix the other issues shown in the validator in the Filter Effects spec.

Right now, we are focusing on the style and doing an HTML5 version is not on our radar. During TPAC, Fantasai and I also got an action item to work with Tantek on the specification boiler plate.

Note that neither document validates.

Also, the http content-type header for CSS Shaders is broken:

Will we have an HTML5 version?

Dear Working Group Chairs,

As part of editorial work in the CSS and SVG Working Groups, I have
started a specification styling project to improve the readability of
our specifications. I have been working with Ben Schwarz, a designer and
typographer with experience [1] in this area. I will also be working
with Elika Etemad and Divya Manian on this effort. We have an Editor's
Draft that illustrates the draft styles:

(select the 'additional spec. style toggle in the upper right).

and also:
(which uses the style by default).

If you are interested in providing feedback on the styles or wish to
participate in this project, please contact me, otherwise no actions are
required of your group. In a few months, in coordination with the W3C
Comm Team, we will assess the feedback we receive and determine whether
we should seek broader adoption of the styles.

Thank you,

Vincent Hardy
