[css3-mediaqueries] New draft of Media Queries

The CSS WG published a new draft of Media Queries:


Media Queries was already a Candidate Recommendation. However, we found 
no implementations yet of 'device-aspect-ratio' and also decided that 
the handling of syntax errors could be made more precise. So we made a 
new draft to mark 'device-aspect-ratio' as "at risk" (which allows us to 
drop it before going to Recommendation without needing another draft, if 
support doesn't improve). We also took the opportunity to add two new 
media features that were requested: ‘aspect-ratio’ and ‘orientation’. 
They, too, may be dropped again if no implementations arrive soon.

We'd especially like comments on those changes, i.e:

   - Revision of the syntax section.
   - Addition of the ‘aspect-ratio’ and ‘orientation’ media features.

As usual, comments are best sent to this mailing list, 
<www-style@w3.org>. Please, prefix the subject line with 
"[css3-mediaqueries]" as I did on this message.

This request for comments is a "Last Call," which means the next 
publication is expected to be a Candidate Recommendation or a Proposed 
Recommendation. It also means there is a deadline for comments: November 
21, 2008.

For the CSS WG,
