"New" working draft: CSS TV Profile 1.0

Just before Christmas, the CSS working group managed to publish
another draft, the "CSS TV Profile 1.0"[1]. It is by now already two
weeks old, but since I went on holiday that day, I forgot to announce
it here :-(

Anyway, this is a small draft, containing a "profile" of CSS2 for
television, i.e., a subset of features from CSS2 to provide a common
base for all implementations of CSS on (digital) TV devices.

It is, in fact, very similar to the profile for mobile devices[2]: it
contains everything that one has, and a few things more. That reflects
the fact that televisons are a little less constrained in resources
than mobile devices.

It is expected that this draft won't be long in following the Mobile
Profile and become a Candidate Recommendation. Maybe two or three
months, with just one more draft in between. But it depends on the
feedback, of course...
