Status of CSS 2.1 and Print Profiles

Dear W3C CSS WG:

UPnP Forum has a dependency on CSS 2.1, XHTML-Print, CSS Print Profile, and CSS Paged Media Module. These specifications must be W3C Recommendations before the UPnP Print Enhanced Device Control Protocol specification can be submitted to ISO/IEC for standardization.

I have been asked to present an update on the progress of standardization of CSS 2.1 at the upcoming UPnP Forum Steering Committee meeting on September 3. Could you direct me to a summary of the status of CSS 2.1, or answer a couple of specific questions?

My understanding is that CSS 2.1 was updated and re-entered W3C Candidate Recommendation Status on April 23, 2009. It was to remain in CR status at least until July 23, 2009. Is that correct? Is it still at CR today? Any estimate of when CSS 2.1 will be moved to Proposed Recommendation status?

My understanding is that the major items holding up CSS 2.1 progress have been creation of interoperable implementations and creation of test suites. Do those continue to be issues for progress of CSS 2.1?

Thanks very much for your help with this!

Best regards,

Toby Nixon
Vice President, UPnP Forum
