The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the
CSS Logical Properties and Values Module Level 1:


This module introduces properties and values that control layout through
logical (writing-mode--relative), rather than physical, direction and
dimension mappings. (The module defines such flow-relative properties and
values for the features defined in [CSS21] and older CSS modules; newer
CSS modules are expected to define such equivalents on their own.)

One of the major open issues is the syntax for switching 'margin'-style
shorthand parsing from physical to logical, and the WG would appreciate
feedback and suggestions on this feature, see

The other two open issues are about how logical longhands inherit
and whether shorthands expand to all longhnads or only either logical or physical

We encourage everyone interested in this module to put some thought into
these issues and to send any feedback for consideration. We hope to close
off the issues by the end of TPAC in October and transition the module to
CR shortly afterwards.

Please review the draft, and send any comments to the www-style mailing list,
<www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-logical] (as I did on this message)
or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at

For the CSS WG,
