[css3-color] New last call for comments on CSS Color

From: Bert Bos <bert@w3.org>
Date: Mon, 21 Jul 2008 21:49:19 +0200
To: W3C style mailing list <www-style@w3.org>
Message-Id: <200807212149.19779.bert@w3.org>

The CSS WG just published the new draft of the Color Module that was 
already briefly discussed on this mailing list. The URL is:


It was necessary to publish another Working Draft, because we needed to 
remove a few features that have not been implemented (as far as we 
know). Those features were not marked as being "at risk" in the 
previous Candidate Recommendation, and so we couldn't just remove them 
and go to (Proposed) Recommendation directly.

Those dropped features[2] are the properties to specify color profiles 
for external images and the 'flavor' property.

There are no other changes to the specification and so we expect that 
the next publication will be a Proposed Recommendation (i.e., we skip 
Candidate Recommendation), as soon as we are happy with the test 

Nevertheless, this *is* another, last, call for comments and we will 
discuss all new feedback to see if there aren't any flaws in the 
specification that we didn't notice in the previous round.

If you send comments, please, do as usual: send them to this mailing 
list, <www-style@w3.org>, and prefix the subject line with [css3-color] 
as I did on this message. The deadline is September 1.
