[CSSWG][css-text-4] Updated WD of CSS Text Level 4

The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Text Module Level 4:


This CSS module defines properties for text manipulation and specifies their 
processing model. It covers line breaking, justification and alignment, white 
space handling, and text transformation.

This update:
1. Merges in the entire contents of CSS Text Level 3 so that it is no longer a 
diff spec.
2. Adds percentage values to letter-spacing and word-spacing, to allow for 
values relative to the font-size of the text to which they apply. (Em values 
are resolved on the element on which they are declared, and inherit as 
absolute lengths.)

Additions since Level 3 are summarized in:
Some of these features are more stable than others, and future work on this 
module will be refining their designs and definitions. You can see the current 
list of open issues at:

We encourage anyone with an interest in text and internationalization to 
review this draft. Please send any comments to the www-style mailing list,
<www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-text-4] (as I did on this
message) or (preferably) file them in the CSSWG GitHub repository at

For the CSS WG,
