An updated WD of Generated Content for Paged Media is available:


The new WD has fewer features than the previous version:


The motivation for shedding features is to have a specification that
is simpler to implement, more aliened with implementations, and more

There are, however, some new things in the new draft:

  - the 'env()' function returns data from the local environment of
    the user at the time of formatting.

  - inline footnotes; the value of 'display' in the @footnote context
    will determine if footnotes are block or inline

Two of the features that were removed from this draft will appear in
other places:

  - 'border-clip' is here:


  - 'text-replace' is too useful to forget, but too powerful for this
    spec (sulk)
