(Totally forgot about this one, too.)
On 2 March 2017 the CSS WG published a First Public Working Draft of the
CSS Rhythmic Sizing Module Level 1


This module contains CSS features for sizing boxes in multiples of a “step size”.

This is an early-stage Working Draft and may change significantly as
the feature designs are worked out. The 'line-height-step' property
in particular has raised a number of design concerns, see e.g. WG
minutes at (among others)
The CSSWG is interested in use cases for 'line-height-step' that are
not better solved by either the 'block-step' feature or by adjusting
the inline layout model to exclude child boxes from the calculation
of the line box height (thus forcing the line height to remain
constant within a paragraph).

Please review the draft, and send any comments to this mailing list,
<www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-rhythm] (as I did on this
message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at

For the CSS WG,
