The CSS WG has published an First Public Working Draft of the CSS Shapes
Module Level 1:


This draft was previously part of the CSS Exclusions and Shapes
specification. Exclusions and Shapes have been split out into two separate
specifications, and this draft contains only Shapes.

CSS Shapes extends wrapping behavior to shapes other than rectangles.
The first level of CSS Shapes allows shapes to be applied to floats, so
 inline wrapping around a float can happen around an arbitrary shape.
This draft includes a syntax for defining basic shapes, extracting a
shape from the alpha channel of an image, and applying these shapes to
floats using new shape-outside, shape-margin and shape-image-threshold

Changes since the split from Exclusions and Shapes:

  - shape-inside and shape-padding were postponed to a future level

- using SVG elements to define a shape was also postponed.

All of the changes are listed at:


Please send any comments to this mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, and

For the CSS WG,

Alan Stearns
