Today the CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Exclusions and Shapes Module Level 3:


CSS Exclusions and Shapes allows you to define non-rectangular shapes for wrapping content, for instance around the outside of floats. It also extends content wrapping functionality previously limited to floats: now any element can become an exclusion.

This new draft contains an update to the exclusions processing model, which describes how exclusions cause content to wrap around their shapes. Several updated examples show how the model works using varying positioning schemes such as floats and grid layout.

The draft also goes into much more detail on how floats work with all of the new capabilities. A new example using floats has been added, and a new section clarifies how floats and exclusions interoperate.

Significant changes are listed at:
